The Grand Forks Police Department has released the identity of a man who jumped off a train and was run over Sunday morning.

Jacob Huber, 21, was taken to Altru Hospital shortly after police found him calling for help near the 1500 block of Dyke Avenue around 1:30 a.m. Huber had climbed onto a moving train downtown, a police report said, and was run over by that train when he attempted jumping off.

Police did not share Huber's medical condition in a statement released Monday afternoon due to medical privacy, they said, but they were able to say his injuries were non-life-threatening as of Monday afternoon.

In a release after the incident Sunday morning, police said Huber suffered "severe injuries to his limbs."
