EMERADO, N.D. (AP) - An Emerado man was injured when he was struck by an Amtrak train in the northeastern North Dakota town.

The Highway Patrol says in a statement that 51-year-old Dan O’Donnel was standing next to the tracks when he was hit about 5:20 a.m. Thursday.

Patrol Lt. Troy Hischer tells KFGO radio that O’Donnel suffered an arm injury and walked to a nearby bar for help. He was taken to a Grand Forks hospital for treatment.

Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari tells KFGO that O’Donnel was on railroad property. The patrol is continuing to investigate.

No one on the westbound passenger train was hurt, but it was delayed for about an hour.
