A Middle River man was killed by a freight train yesterday

near the 700 block of North Point Road in Southeast Baltimore, police said.

Michael Thomas Conner, 43, who lived in the first block of Tinker Road, was sitting on a railroad bridge near Quad Avenue about 1: 50 a.m. when a CSX freight train, headed to Philadelphia, struck him and knocked him off the span and into an unnamed creek, said Lt. John Miller of the Southeastern District.

Miller said the engineer, who applied the brakes but could not stop the train in time, signaled Conner audibly and visually, but PTC the victim did not move. "According to the engineer, he was panicking and looking like he had no where to go," Miller said.
