A San Marcos man is undergoing treatment at University Medical Center Brackenridge for injuries sustained from being struck by a train Tuesday afternoon.
City spokeswoman Melissa Millecam said the incident occurred in the 600 block of East Hopkins Street at about 1:40 p.m. The train was stopped near Hopkins Street and the H-E-B grocery store as emergency crews assessed the scene.
The victim’s identity and condition are unknown at this point, Millecam said.
According to a press release from the City of San Marcos, witnesses say the man was walking along a railroad spur when he stepped in front of the train and was struck.
An employee of H-E-B who wished to remain anonymous said the victim was a coworker. Workers have been told not to disclose any information about their brand partners, the source said.
“(The victim) is a very quiet guy who keeps to himself,” the source said.
The source said they did not know much about the incident, and that H-E-B management has not told employees anything about the case.
The San Marcos Police Department Investigation team is looking into the incident.
