FLAGSTAFF - Two Northern Arizona University students were seriously injured when they were struck by a train in downtown Flagstaff.
The pair apparently were standing between two sets of track, watching a passing train and didn't see an oncoming train on the other track.
Flagstaff police Sergeant Jerry Blair says the men attempted to scramble to safety when they finally saw the approaching train, but both wound up being hit.
One man was at last report listed in serious condition at Flagstaff Medical Center with a broken leg.
The other was listed in critical condition with head injuries at Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix.
