MAMARONECK, N.Y. — A Providence & Worcester Railroad freight conductor remains hospitalized after sustaining a head injury on the job early Monday morning, The Journal News reports.

The 31-year-old conductor thought something had struck the lead locomotive of the train and leaned his head out of the window to investigate. As he looked out of the window, an object struck the conductor in the head, says Michael Williams, a representative from the Genesee & Wyoming, which now runs the P&W.

He was taken to a nearby hospital where he remained in the intensive care as of late Monday.

The incident happened about 1:55 a.m. near Metro-North’s Mamaroneck station. The 76-car train was traveling westbound about 25 mph, according to railroad representatives.
