Happened last week. Looks like IHB is who the conductor worked for.

A train conductor was flown to a hospital Tuesday night after he was run over by a train, police said.

Hammond police responded about 9:45 p.m. to the rail yard near Kennedy Avenue and Gibson Transfer Road, Lt. Steven Kellogg said.

The conductor suffered a severe leg injury and was airlifted to a hospital, police said.

The case is considered an industrial accident, so Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad will be conducting its own investigation, police said.

Hammond police did not have further information about the conductor, because they are not investigating, Kellogg said.

Indiana Harbor Belt did not return a message Wednesday seeking comment.

"Had a severe leg injury." One must assume eh?

Blunt force trauma is also common for people hit by trains. It all depends on how far in the way of the train one is and one's luck.
