“I would never try to kill myself.”
Those are the words of 22-year-old Aaron Salazar who’s finally speaking out-months after he was found severely injured by Amtrak tracks in Truckee in May. Salazar says his injuries-which include a damaged spinal cord and brain-aren’t consistent with attempted suicide as Amtrak investigators have concluded. But Salazar doesn’t remember even being on a train. Amtrak says they’re glad his condition is improving, and they look forward to speaking with Salazar and any other potential witnesses in the case.
