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.
