Man Dies In Hospital After He Is Hit By Train In Mentor
Zlatko Rosandic passed away Tuesday morning in MetroHealth Medical Center
A man passed away Tuesday morning in MetroHealth Medical Center from injuries he suffered after he was struck by a train Thursday evening in Mentor.
Zlatko Rosandic, 52, of Eastlake, was working at one of his two jobs that evening. He was on his coffee break and went to cross the CSX tracks at the dead end of Industrial Parkway, Mentor Fire Battalion Chief Joe Busher said the night of the collision.
Mentor Police are still investigating how the crash occurred. Authorities think Rosandic was crossing the tracks so he could get something to eat or drink from a nearby restaurant.
Rosandic was taken to Lake West Medical Center. From there, he was flown to MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland.
Busher said that, by all appearances, the collision was unintentional on the part of the Rosandic and the train conductor.
