2 men struck by trains, hurt in separate incidents

A man was struck by a train downtown Saturday night, the second man to be struck in two days.

Both men survived, but suffered injuries, police said.

The man struck Saturday was hit near South Toole Avenue and East 16th Street just before 10:30 p.m., said Capt. Trisha Tracy, a Tucson Fire Department spokeswoman.

He was taken to a hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, police said.

The man hit by a train Friday morning had leg injuries, police said.

The man had been walking near West Sixth Street and North Ninth Avenue about 8 a.m. when he was struck, said Sgt. Fabian Pacheco, a Tucson police spokesman.

TFD officials said it can take more than a mile for a train to stop, and advise pedestrians to use “extreme caution” when crossing the tracks, Tracy said.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
