"Bug on a windshield"
« on: April 28, 2015, 07:47:35 AM »
A 40-year Muncie man took an unexpected train ride Friday night. He tried to run in front of the train at White River Boulevard, but the loco scooped him up and carried him over the White River trestle. He then rolled off and went into Beech Grove Cemetery, eventually finding his way to Ball Memorial Hospital.

In the Star Press story at the following link, he said that the train picked him up like a bug on a windshield. The police arrested him on an outstanding warrant. The train stopped after crossing the trestle, but the crew couldn't find him.
