An LSU student was hit by a train on Nicholson Drive near campus early Friday after falling asleep on the tracks, Baton Rouge police said.

The student was apparently intoxicated when the incident happened about 2 a.m., said Cpl. L’Jean McKneely, a Baton Rouge police spokesman.

He was taken to Our Lady of the Lake Hospital and treated for a laceration on his head and serious injuries to his leg, McKneely said.

No further details were available Friday afternoon.
