A Michigan man lost both of his legs while trying to evade Michigan State Police in Saginaw.

Troopers were responding to an armed robbery call when they noticed a car with expired tags make an illegal turn and began to follow it.

The suspect noticed he was being followed, ditched the car and began running away on foot.

A trooper chased the man to railroad tracks where a train was crossing, according to WNEM.  As the train was passing, the suspect attempted to crawl under the train, but was caught by the locomotive and dragged about 1,000 feet.

When troopers caught up to him, one of his legs was completely severed and the other was seriously damaged.  Hospital staff later informed police the remaining leg would have to be amputated.

The suspect had two traffic warrants and a suspended license, but was not the robbery suspect they were looking for, according to Lt. Dave Kaiser with MSP.
