A man was struck by a train in New Braunfels early Friday morning, but police need help identifying him.

Police say the collision happened at around 2:45 a.m. near North Hidalgo Avenue.

First responders got to the scene and found the man suffering from life-threatening injuries laying near the railroad tracks.

He was taken to SAMMC.  No word on his current condition.

Police have not been able to verify his identity.

He is described as a Hispanic man in his 40s with short dark hair.  He is roughly 5’7″ tall with a medium build.

He also has several tattoos on his body.

One tattoo is of a woman wearing a sombrero with the name “Lisa” on his left arm.  A second is a skull with a flaming mohawk on his right chest.  A third is a large cross on his stomach.  A fourth tattoo is of two hearts connected by banners on his right arm.  There are two names on the banners, but they are illegible.

If you have any information that could help, you are encouraged to call New Braunfels police at 830-221-4100.
