CSX looking into boy's injury in Cumberland

December 30, 2009

CSX Corp. says it is investigating whether any of its trains hit a 12-year-old Cumberland boy who was seriously hurt while allegedly cutting across the company's property. The boy was being treated Tuesday at Johns Hopkins Hospital for injuries he suffered Monday night. His name and condition haven't been released. CSX spokesman Gary Sease says the Jacksonville, Fla.-based company is getting a full accounting of all the trains that moved through the area. Cumberland police say the boy was hit by a train about 8:30 p.m. His friends told police he had sneaked through a hole in a fence and tried to beat a train across one of multiple sets of tracks.
