Former Westmoore Football Player Injured in Edmond Train Accident

Sep 09, 2018
The University of Central Oklahoma released a statement this evening identifying Westmoore graduate Derek Loccident as the victim of a early Sunday morning train accident in Edmond. Earlier today police reported that a man became stuck while walking on the tracks and lost his foot in the accident.

Here is the statement from UCO:

The University of Central Oklahoma athletics department wishes to extend its full support to the Loccident family following an accident involving Derek Loccident Sunday morning. Derek is a sophomore on the UCO football team.

"The only thing that matters right now is that Derek knows he has our full support," head football coach Nick Bobeck said. "We are here for him. It's important for his family to know that too. This isn't about him being a football player right now, it's about him being a man that we are here for."

For more information, please contact the proper authorities.

UCO's Center for Counseling and well-being in the Nigh University Center is open during normal business hours this week and students are encouraged to reach out if anything is needed.

Loccident is a sophomore at UCO and played defensive back for the Bronchos. He played in seven games as a redshirt freshman before an injury cut short his season.
