A young male was fatally struck by a train Tuesday morning.
Clark County Sheriff's Maj. Christopher Clark says the white male, described as in his late teens or early 20s, had been sitting on the tracks about 7:50 a.m. April 7, 2020, as the Norfolk Southern train approached. The train signaled, with lights and horn; however, the male didn't respond and was struck.
Clark said they do not yet know exactly what happened.
"We don't know if this is an accident, if this is more of a possible suicide. We're not sure at this point," Clark said. "We're very early on in this investigation. One of the first things we need to do is get the person identified so we can kind of look into the events in his life leading up to this moment."
The train was traveling at 45 mph, which is 5 mph slower than the speed limit in the area. It was traveling eastbound. The incident happened about 200 yards west of the intersection of Haddix Road and Wescott Avenue, which is near Dayton Springfield Road in Mad River Township.
