It happened around two P-M yesterday, along the train tracks at McCoy Falls.
Sheriff's investigators say 20- year old Michael (Kuh-vic-ee-uh) Cavicchia of South Carolina was alone when he slipped and fell.
Cavicchia suffered head and other injuries and was flown to Roanoke Memorial.
Norfolk Southern had to stop one of its trains from passing through until rescue personnel were able to clear the area-- because Cavicchia landed so close to the tracks.

Authorities found Kovack's red Geo Tracker abandoned along Route 19 in West Virginia four days later. There were few clues . They said there was no evidence that a struggle took place inside or outside the car. They suspect his vehicle ran out of gas and he may have gotten into someone else's car.
