Bicyclist Struck, Dragged Under Train At Santa Barbara Train Station

Posted on Wednesday, November 13, 2013 6:02pm

A bicyclist who tried to cross in front of a train arriving at Santa Barbara’s train station was struck, and dragged more than 60 feet, as horrified people unable to do anything watched.

It happened at around 9:30 this morning.

Santa Barbara Police say the man ignored the train’s warnings, and pedaled in front of the southbound Amtrak and was hit, ending up under the train.

It took firefighters more than ten minutes to rescue the man, who is reported to be in moderate condition in a hospital tonight.
