Update 11:30 p.m. Seattle Fire says an approximately 50-year-old man was hit by a train, and he was taken to the hospital in stable condition with serious injuries.
Earlier: Firefighters responded to Carkeek Park just after 9:30 p.m. for a “heavy rescue,” and scanner reports say a pedestrian was hit by a train.
The train stopped, and medics responded to attend to the patient, who may have survived the collision. Train traffic through the park — which is a major line between Seattle and Everett — was shut down for about an hour.
Silver posted updates from the fire scanner in the My Ballard Group.
