RENO” Washoe County sheriff’s deputies say a man fishing from a bridge east of Reno had his leg severed by an oncoming train.

As the train approached, two jumped off but the third didn’t make it and his leg was severed.

He was taken to a Reno hospital. Details of his condition were not available.
