The deaths of Connor Peterson and Kyle Patrick Wankmiller, whose bodies were found on the light rail tracks in Lutherville last Sunday afternoon, have proved to be something of a mystery that is only now coming into focus. This much is now known: It was the result of an accidental collision with a northbound train. The 17-year-olds were walking north on the southbound tracks when they were struck from behind by a train they likely assumed was traveling on the other set of rails. At least that's what the evidence collected so far by the Maryland Transit Administration would seem to indicate - but it also raises some disturbing questions for which the MTA does not yet have adequate answers.

THE PROBLEM : Sections of a guard rail are missing from a Locust Point bridge. THE BACK STORY : Joggers and bikers who use the narrow walkway on the Fort Avenue bridge leading to Fort McHenry in Locust Point should keep moving when they pass the missing guard rails on the northern side. Two sections of the rail are missing there, on the end closest to Reynolds Avenue, leaving only a short wall between pedestrians on the narrow sidewalk and the plummet below. "It would be so, so easy for a child/teenager to fall over 40 feet below to the railroad track bed," wrote Bronson Sweeney, a runner who lives in the area, in an e-mailed response to a query from Watchdog.
