A Norfolk Southern employee was fatally struck by a train at the railroad’s Bayview rail yard in East Baltimore Thursday morning, officials said.
It’s unclear what time the incident happened, and the employee’s name is being withheld until his family has been notified of his death.
The National Transportation Safety Board said it is sending investigators to review the incident, which it said was an accident.
A Baltimore Police spokesman confirmed that a man was struck but referred further questions to the Norfolk Southern Railway Police Department, which is leading the investigation.
“We are cooperating with investigating officials,” Norfolk Southern spokeswoman Susan Terpay said in an email.
