Former UFC welterweight champion Matt Hughes has been airlifted to a medical facility after the truck he was in collided with a moving train Friday, UFC president Dana White told ESPN.

White said he's been in contact with Hughes' family, and that they are currently en route to the medical facility where the 43-year-old was taken.

"Apparently he has head trauma," White said. "His family is traveling to him now."

White did not know exactly where the accident took place. He said Hughes, who lives in Illinois, was apparently helping a friend when the accident occurred.

Hope he's ok.

I also hope it wasn't a suicide attempt....

It could just be a freak accident,either way i hope he's ok,i just read hes awake but eyes are closed and he can squeeze his hands.

I feel super bad for him and hope he recovers, but...

a bit of the Darwinist in me thinks that if you get bit by a train, then you deserve to get bit by a train.
