Oscar Pavon Injured in Houston, TX, METRO Train Accident

Houston, TX -- May 18, 2017, Oscar Pavon, a blind man, was injured after an accident where he fell off of a train while attempting to exit.

Authorities reported that the incident happened near a station just off the intersection of Fannin Street and San Jacinto Street. The victim, Oscar Pavon, was a passenger on the train. He is reportedly blind and uses a walking stick.

METRO officials reported that the train was nearing a station, but stopped too soon. The rail operator apparently opened the doors mistakenly in an area with no platform. Pavon stepped through the doors before they could close, and the sudden drop caused him to trip.

As a result, Pavon sustained unspecified injuries to his leg and back, as well as broken teeth.

At this time, it's unclear what factors caused this to happen. Authorities continue their investigations.
