The train conductor called the Spring Valley Police Department after spotting a man lying in between the tracks about one mile east of the Route 89 dry bridge.

Rodriguez was found underneath the train. He was suffering from a head injury. As of Wednesday, Rodriguez was listed in serious condition.
