Bicycle vs. Train Accident
updated: Nov 13, 2013, 4:17 PM

Source: City of Santa Barbara

A bicyclist, who ignored warnings of an approaching Amtrak train, tried to cross the tracks in front of the train as it arrived at the Santa Barbara Station. He was dragged along the platform, with his bicycle, 60 feet and then ended up beneath the train. The bike was dragged a hundred feet past the point where he lay. He was transported to Cottage Hospital in moderate condition.

Santa Barbara City Fire crews and AMR medics treated the 45 year old male for injuries to his legs and took cervical precautions as they prepared him for transport to Cottage Hospital.

The incident occurred at 0930 this morning as a Southbound Amtrak passenger train approached the Santa Barbara train station on lower State Street. The man was extricated and transported by 0950.

The Santa Barbara City Fire Department urges all citizens to exercise extreme caution at all train crossings and to heed all warnings associated with train traffic.
