Two people are hospitalized, after jumping from a moving train Friday morning outside of Shelby.

Richland County Sheriff's Deputies were called at 9 a.m.  to Hummel Road near  Ohio 61 in Sharon Township.

A 17-year-old girl. and 19-year-old Vincent Gump of Dayton, were found injured. Gump was unresponsive and flown to Grant Hospital with severe head injuries.  He's in critical condition after undergoing surgery.

Deputies have determined they had hopped a train in Cleveland, and were making their way to Grafton, outside of Elyria in Lorain County. As the train passed through Shelby, they thought they were in Grafton, and jumped off.

The girl says she was unconscious for an unknown length of time. When she awoke, she walked to a nearby factory, where a worker called 911.

She is in stable condition at Ohio Health MedCentral Mansfield Hospital with injuries to her face and feet.
