One boy was killed and another was hospitalized in West Virginia following a train accident. Authorities say a boy under the age of 14 was riding a bike near the Van Clevesville Road railroad crossing when he was hit by a train.
Authorities are still investigating the incident, but say the deceased boy was visiting from another area. The other boy was taken to the hospital. Police have not determined why the boys were on the track at the time of the accident.
MARC trains were stopped in both directions while crews cleared the scene.
Most passengers called for someone to pick them up. One passenger said, “I just want to get as far away from here as I can. I’m just sick over this. A child died.”
