A man was airlifted to a St. Louis hospital this morning after apparently being hit by a train near Brighton.  Union Pacific Railroad Police say the man was hit by an Amtrak train just after 6am south of town, but an Amtrak spokesman says they are examining their equipment, as they are not sure that is the case.  

An Amtrak train came through the area at 5am, and the next one wasn't scheduled until 6:30, so spokesman Marc Magliari says they are not positive it was their train that injured the man.  The victim's condition and identity is not being made public at this time, but he was alive when he was transported.
