Officers responded to railroad tracks near 47th and Mitchell streets at 4:45 a.m. Sept. 23 on a report of a train vs. pedestrian accident. A 46-year-old man sustained non-life threatening injuries to his head and leg after he was struck by the railway of a staircase on the train as he was attempting to cross a bridge on the tracks with his bike. The man was knocked off the bridge and fell 10 feet into the creek below. He was pulled from the water and transported to Boulder Community Hospital. The man also had been the victim of an earlier hit and run accident the prior evening at Folsom and Canyon streets. He had just been released from the hospital and was on his way to a campground when the second accident occurred.
