A 37-year-old man is in the hospital after being struck by the Rail Runner Express train at about 9:30 p.m. Monday near Interstate 25 and the northbound Cerrillos Road exit.
According to state police, Antonio Demostemos was walking south along the tracks wearing headphones and did not hear or see the train coming. Lt. Robert McDonald said Demostemos suffered injuries to one of his legs but is expected to recover fully.
The Rail Runner was delayed Monday night as emergency crews responded to the scene and transported Demostemos to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center. There were no reports of further delays Tuesday morning.
