HAGERSTOWN — A Hagerstown man who was struck by a train Saturday morning in the area of Hopewell Road and Interstate 81 was discharged from the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, a spokesman for the center said Sunday evening.

Jimmy E. Lewis, 30, suffered internal injuries in the accident, which happened shortly after 11:30 a.m., Deputy 1st Class Bryan Teets of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office said previously.

Teets said Lewis was lying across the tracks when he was struck.

Instead of being run over by the train, Lewis was pushed along the tracks about 100 feet, Teets said.
