Man Seriously Injured by Train in Lometa
Around 7:30pm last evening the Lampasas County Sheriff’s Office got a call from Lometa, reporting an incident with a BNSF train that was passing through Lometa.
A Lometa pedestrian, 27 yr old David Allen Sutton, evidently fell partially under the train, severed an arm and seriously injured a leg. A Scott and White helicopter evacuated the injured man from Lometa Regional Park and took him to the Temple hospital. He had been discovered along the track by passing pedestrians and sketchy information seems to point to his possibly trying to “jump” the train and slipped off, but that has not been confirmed.
