Pedestrian struck by Light Rail Train in Denver 02/11/17

02/11/17 Denver, CO – A man was struck overnight on this date by a RTD Light Rail train at the Light Rail station located at I-25 and Louisiana Ave. in Denver.  The accident occurred around 1AM which was in the same time frame and in the same proximity as Denver District 3 police were searching for a man who was reportedly shirtless and acting crazy in the median that divides I-25 near Washington Street.  The cops were unable to locate the strange man on I-25, but just moments later a 911 report of a train vs. pedestrian accident at the Louisiana station came in.  Denver fire and paramedics wheeled a victim out of the elevator on the platform of the station and rushed that person to the hospital lights and siren.  The accident is under investigation as of this writing.  The extent of the victim’s injures are not known to us at this time nor can we say for certain if the person who was struck by the train is the same man who was acting oddly in the middle of I-25.  See the HD video here to learn more of the incident.  Shane Anthony reporting
