The man who was airlifted to a St. Louis hospital Friday morning after possibly being hit by a train in Brighton is doing remarkably well, according to his mother. Melinda Richards says her son, 25-year-old Cody L. Moore, suffered a small brain bleed, a lacerated spleen, a broken neck, knee and arm, and and a shattered elbow.
Still, she says her son is doing well, all things considered.
She says her son doesn't remember much about the incident.
Apparently the railroad companies can't either. A spokesman for Amtrak says they are convinced they did not hit Moore, and a Union Pacific Railroad spokesman says the accident remains under investigation.
