Derek Loccident’s life will never be the same after being hit by a train near downtown Oklahoma City early Sunday morning. The University of Central Oklahoma football player was apparently walking on the tracks when a light came on signaling that a train was coming. In his effort of trying to move out of the way, his foot got stuck in the rails, police said. Via Koco: “The train ran over Loccident’s foot and he was taken to an area hospital. Although he lost his foot, police said Loccident is still alive. “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,” UCO officials said in a news release.” Loccident was a sophomore cornerback  and led the team with 15 through two games this season. “The only thing that matters right now is that Derek knows he has our full support,” coach Nick Bobeck said. “We are here for him. It’s important for his family to know that too. This isn’t about him being a football player right now, it’s about him being a man that we are here for.” – TO
