May 4, 2017

 
 

LYON TWP., MI - The Oakland County Sheriff's Department reports that an 88 year-old Northville man was hit by a train Wednesday morning.

The man was reportedly driving north on Griswold north off 8 Mile Road shortly after 11:00 a.m. when he apparently went through the closed crossing gate. His vehicle was then struck by a passing train, and ended up in the ditch on the side of the road.

Incredibly, the incident resulted in only minor damage and minor injuries.

The man was transported to Providence Park Hospital in Novi for treatment, where he is listed in stable condition.
