OKLAHOMA CITY – Emergency crews were called to reports of a train accident in southwest Oklahoma City Friday night.

Initial reports indicate a Heartland Flyer train conductor thought they ran into a pedestrian near southwest 15th and Shields.

Police say the pedestrian may have been laying between the tracks when the train went over them.

According to scanner traffic, the conductor stopped the train and went to check on the man.  The conductor says the man appeared extremely intoxicated and was not injured from the train.

After speaking with the man, the conductor got back into the train and continued on to a nearby station so passengers could unload.

Police found the man and say he refused treatment.
