Homeless man grazed by train, temporarily closes crossings

A 37-year-old homeless man was grazed by a train over the weekend that shut down train operations for about two hours, authorities said.

Christian Resto Burgos, no address given, was walking along the railroad track on South Henry Street at 7:23 a.m. Saturday as a train was approaching, according to an arrest report.

Burgos was carrying a suit case on his back, and the train struck his suit case, throwing him to the ground, authorities said.

He was uninjured, but the railroad was forced to temporarily stop operations for two hours, which closed several train crossings, the report stated. Burgos admitted to authorities he had taken meth earlier in the day and drank alcohol, the report said.

A syringe was found nearby and a half empty bottle of wine was found in his suit case, authorities said.

He was arrested on a charge of public intoxication.
