An 11-year-old boy hit by a train late Sunday night is expected to be okay.

While crossing the tracks, his foot got stuck and the train struck his ankle.

He was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

The train was headed to Nashville from Memphis.

No further details were immediately released.

This is the second juvenile hit by a train in Nashville within a week.
