MIDDLE RIVER, Md. (WJZ)—Baltimore County police have confirmed that a 10-year-old boy was hit by a speeding train in Middle River.
Police say it happened Sunday morning near Eastern Avenue and Tidewater Lane.
The Acela train conductor told police he believed he may have hit a small child. When officers arrived on the scene, they discovered blood and clothing on the tracks–but no victim.
That’s because the boy’s father, Randolph Smith, took 10-year-old Tyler Eugene Smith to Franklin Square Hospital with serious injuries.
He apparently told doctors that the boy had been hurt on a playground.
The father’s driver’s license was found at the crash site.
He could now face charges.
