Man Is Flown To Hospital After He Is Hit By Train
The man is in critical condition at MetroHealth
A man was flown to the hospital after he was hit by a train and suffered very serious injuries, Mentor Fire Battalion Chief Joe Busher said.
At 8:48 p.m., Mentor paramedics were called to the CSX tracks at the end of Industry Parkway.
Zlatko Rosandic, 52, of Eastlake, was found with several serious injuries near the tracks. While Busher did not list all of the Rosandic's injuries, he said the collision had amputated his foot.
Rosandic was taken to Lake West Medical Center. From there, he was flown to MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland where he is in critical condition.
Busher said Rosandic worked at a nearby business and was on his coffee break. The man is thought to have been walking to the nearby Panera restaurant when the collision occurred.
"This is, by all appearances, an accident," Busher said.
The collision is being investigated by Mentor Police.
