Stefan Rogenmoser of The Summerville Journal Scene writes in part:


A deaf man was nearly hit by a train when his scooter stalled while crossing railroad tracks in Lincolnville - but he looked up, saw the train and jumped off the scooter "a split second" before the train struck it, authorities said.

Pretty compeling story about the near hit for the deaf-mute man.

Go read it.

Thanks for tip-off, David.
