A Redding man is in the hospital after an accident last night with a Union Pacific train.

Union Pacific is investigating the accident that sent 34-year-old Gino Childs to the hospital with head trauma.

The tracks are cleared now, but part of the investigation is looking into how Childs came into contact with the train that was just north of Oasis Road.

The driver reportedly saw Childs on the side of the tracks and braked. Childs appeared to be running back and forth.

He was conscious and taken to Mercy Medical Center around 11 last night.
