Central Oklahoma sophomore defensive back Derek Loccident lost his foot after being hit by a train Sunday morning.

Oklahoma City police said Loccident, 20, was crawling under a stopped train when it started moving, severing his foot, according to Katrina Butcher of KFOR. Police had initially said Loccident was walking along the tracks when the mechanical railroad switch was activated and pinned his foot.

Loccident was able to flag someone down and was transported to a local hospital. He's expected to be okay, according to Butcher.

"The only thing that matters right now is that Derek knows he has our full support," head football coach Nick Bobeck said in a statement. "We are here for him. It's important for his family to know that too. This isn't about him being a football player right now, it's about him being a young man that we are here for."

Loccident had recorded 15 tackles through Central Oklahoma's first two games of the season.
