Man struck and killed by train in Riverdale

A man was killed after he was struck by a CSX train in the Riverdale Park of Prince George's County area early Thursday morning, authorities said.

The man's body was found next to the train tracks at Queensbury Road and Rhode Island Avenue just after midnight, said Cpl. Larry Johnson, a Prince George's County police spokesman. He said it is still unclear why the man went into the path of the train, and he could not identify him yet because investigators were trying to locate his family members
