A man was injured Sunday afternoon when police say he jumped from a moving freight train near an overpass in Browne’s Addition.

Police and firefighters were called at about 1 p.m. to the area of Third Avenue and Maple Street, where a man had apparently leaped from the train. The man, who was not identified, suffered minor injuries, a Spokane police spokesperson said.

The train was delayed while railway crews investigated.
