Man gets hit by fast-moving Amtrak train, survives
August 18, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- A northwest Indiana man is recovering in a south bend hospital after surviving a direct hit from a speeding Amtrak train.
Twenty-two-year-old Darryl See was hit by the Chicago-bound train as he walked along the tracks east of Michigan City on Friday.
He has several broken bones but has already been upgraded to stable condition.
See told police he had headphones on and did not hear the train's whistle as it approached behind him.
"He doesn't remember. We have to go with what he says. Didn't remember even walking on the tracks let alone getting hit," said Helen Hugley, See's grandmother.
Police estimate the train was going 110 miles per hour when it hit See.
