20-Year Old Footballer Loses Left Foot To Train

An Oklahoma college football player lost his foot when he was run over by a train over the weekend.

Derek Loccident, 20, was crawling under a stopped train in downtown Oklahoma City on Sunday around 2.30am when it suddenly started moving.

As he tried to scramble away his left foot was run over and severed at the tracks near 4th street and E.K. Gaylord, cops say.

Police originally reported he was run over as he was walking on the tracks, on Monday they clarified he was crawling under the train when he was hit.

After the horrific accident he was able to flag down a nearby person for help.

Although he lost his foot, he is doing well and recuperating. A GoFundMe account has been set up to raise money for his medical expenses.

The railway company is investigating the incident.
