Almost a Darwin
- A 20-year-old University of Illinois student had her right foot severed in a freak accident early Saturday.
Champaign police Sgt. Dennis Baltzell said the woman and a 20-year-old man, also a UI student, were on a train spray-painting graffiti on a box car when the train moved just before 5 a.m.
They both tried to jump clear of the train but according to Baltzell, the woman didn't jump far enough away and the train ran over her foot.[...] The woman was taken to Carle Foundation Hospital for surgery, where she was listed in fair condition.
Baltzell said she and the man listed home addresses in Chicago.
