Authorities in eastern Kansas say two 16-year-old boys have been released from the hospital after being struck by a train on a railroad bridge.
Douglas County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Lt. Steve Lewis tells the Lawrence Journal-World (http://bit.ly/1qDtzT7 ) on Tuesday that both teens have been discharged but one will have to return for additional surgery on a broken bone.
Lewis says the boys from Lawrence and Eudora were hanging out on the bridge Nov. 1 and couldn’t move quickly enough to avoid the train. Their identities haven’t been released.
Deputies are investigating the accident.
