HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Police in Helena say a 49-year-old man was seriously injured when he rode his bicycle across the tracks in front of a westbound freight train.

Chief Troy McGee says the Helena man suffered broken bones and other injuries when he was hit by the train near Carroll College shortly before 9 p.m. Saturday.

Witnesses say the crossing arms were down and the train had blown its whistle, but McGee says the man was wearing ear buds and may not have heard it. McGee says the man was riding on the left side of the road, which is the side without a crossing arm.

McGee said Monday he could not confirm the extent of the man’s injuries.

The man’s name has not been released.
