FARGO — A man who was struck by a train is in stable, but critical condition at a hospital, according to his CaringBridge website.

The train hit the man at about 12:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 21, and he was sent to a local hospital with serious injuries, the Fargo Police Department said in a Facebook post.

The train's engineer saw the man, Jacob Nohre, lying on the tracks but didn't have enough time to stop, and Nohre became trapped under the train, according to the CaringBridge page.

He suffered a skull fracture to the back of his head, a mild neck fracture, broken ribs, a small brain bleed as well as cuts to his liver and knee, the site says. He is sedated because of his head injury.

"Jake is tough and we have hope that he will make a full recovery but he has a long road ahead of him. It is a miracle that he is alive and we are so thankful," the site says.
