A college football player was seriously injured in a train accident over the weekend.

Derek Loccident, a redshirt freshman defensive back at the University of Central Oklahoma, lost his left foot in a train accident early Sunday morning.

The 20-year-old college football player reportedly lost his foot when he crawled under a parked train and it started to move.


Derek Loccident, 20, a redshirt freshman defensive back from Westmoore High School, attempted to crawl under a stopped train on railroad tracks at SW 4 and E.K. Gaylord Boulevard about 2:30 a.m. Sunday, police reported.

The train started moving and cut off Loccident's foot, according to an Oklahoma City police report. Loccident flagged down a nearby person who took him to a hospital where he was admitted in stable condition, police reported. Someone at the scene found his foot and it was taken to doctors at the hospital, police reported.

The school released the following statement:

"The University of Central Oklahoma Athletics Department wishes to extend its full support to the Loccident family following an accident involving Derek Loccident Sunday morning."

Our thoughts are with Derek and his family.
