EUDORA, KS (KCTV) - Two teens could be in trouble with the law after they were struck by a train in Eudora, Kansas, on Saturday.
Sergeant Chris Morris of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said the two were hanging out on a bridge just before 4 p.m. when they saw the train coming and tried to get off the bridge in time. They were unsuccessful and were hit.
The lieutenant said that what the teens were doing is considered criminal trespassing.
Both boys, who are approximately 16, were found with serious injuries. They were airlifted to local hospitals and their conditions are unknown. Due to their age, officials won’t release their exact ages or names. They did say that one is from Eudora and the other from Lawrence.
The incident happened just west of the Eudora water treatment facility and north of Old K-10 near the Wakarusa River.
