Man Dies After Jumping From Train

      Boundary County Public Information Officer

November 4, 2009

At about 5 a.m. Wednesday, November 4, the Boundary County Sheriff's Office was contacted by Burlington Northern Railroad personnel reporting the possible sighting of a body along their railroad tracks south of Bonners Ferry.

Sheriff's deputies located the body and investigators determined that two men, Dustin Dodge, 25, and Jebediah Burney, 19, both of Naples, had illegally boarded a BNSF train in Naples with the intent of "catching a ride" to the Deep Creek area. As the train passed their destination without slowing or stopping, the two decided to jump from the train as it was traveling between 40-45 miles per hour.

Dodge died at the scene of injuries sustained when he struck the ground. Burney, who was located later at an acquaintances home, suffered non-life threatening injuries and did not request medical treatment.

No charges are expected to be filed by the Sheriff's Office as a result of the incident.
