PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (WSAZ) -- A man lost his leg and is in critical condition after being hit by a train early Saturday morning.
It happened just after midnight at a railroad crossing at the 1000 block of Lincoln Street.
Portsmouth Police say Michael Juratovic, 24, from Sciotoville was hit by a train.
Witnesses told police that Juratovic was climbing between two rail cars and fell when the train moved. The train then ran over his leg -- severing it at the hip.
Juratovic was flown to Cabell Huntington Hospital but is being transferred to OSU Medical Center.
An investigation is pending into possible criminal trespassing charges against Juratovic.
