I saw with my own eyes. He jumped on a train at Fords Branch and when he did he fell and got one of his big toes cut off and the other leg mangled. He will be able to walk again.

Strange, I heard he was trying to take the ground wire off the track, the one that controls the signal and got electrocuted. Even heard the juice blew out his foot and caused all the damage and that he would not use the leg again. also heard it is trying to be kept quite hoping the railroad won't prosecute.

Yes he lives on Dry Fork of Shelby and I also heard that he was trying to steal something. I also heard that he will be able to walk again with a brace.

nosy people. Ben is a good friend and he is in rough shape right now, but he's tough he'll make it. He wasn't trying to steal anything he just made a dumb mistake and got hurt. It's too early right now to say how bad his injuries will be in the end. If you really give a crap what happened to him, call and check in on him with his family, or call down to the hospital to his room. stop just gossiping.

I probably could have called the hospital to check on him.... BUT which hospital and when should one have called? I dont really consider it gossiping to ask how someone is and what happened... gosh, you people are real pieces of work. sorry to hear bout the accident, but had no business playin on the trains anyway.... guess he had to find some way to get "all juiced up"... LOL!!!! Poor Ben....
