A man is in critical condition Wednesday night after getting hit by a train in Big Spring.
It happened around 6pm Wednesday evening when a man in a Ford Pickup was hit and dragged about a mile east of a railroad crossing on Birdwell. Big Spring officials say the man was airlifted to University Medical Center in Lubbock, Texas.
NewsWest 9 found railroad crossing arms not damaged. No fire or burning appears to have happened.
The Victim's name is not being released, pending notification of family members. It appears as if that man was the only one in the truck during the accident.
