Freak accident?

Will Rokos, who wrote Monster's Ball, got hit in the head by a subway train in New York City and is currently recovering in the hospital. How'd it happen? Well, it's nothing special, really--he stuck his head into the path of an oncoming train.

I'd love to know if there was alcohol involved in this New York tale, because otherwise? It simply doesn't make sense. Nobody, I repeat, nobody willingly sticks their head into the path of an oncoming train without either a reason or a good excuse. Did he not hear the giant "woooosh"? Am I missing something?

Will Rokos is listed in critical, but stable, condition in New York City. PopEater ran through the accident details, but it's so strange even when it's described simply. Need background info, please--I think we're missing some details.

"The 57-year-old writer, who had been looking into the subway tunnel to see if a train was approaching [on Saturday afternoon], was thrown back onto the station platform, where fellow subway riders found him semi-conscious but alive," PopEater reports.

Poor Will Rokos! I hope he'll be okay, because that's a terrible (and stupid?) way to get seriously injured. Imagine his poor family trying to explain the accident to others. "He did what?! Why?! Um, okay, I guess that makes sense... *Shaking head*"

Get well soon, Will!
