Man found dead on tracks in Kensington

By Mike McPhate

A man was found dead on train tracks near the Kensington MARC station on Howard Avenue Sunday, Montgomery County police said.

The body was spotted by a conductor at about 1:17 p.m. on the eastbound tracks about 50 yards east of the station. A preliminary investigation suggested he was struck by a train, police said. The last time a train had crossed the section of tracks was about 9:30 a.m., police said.

An investigation is ongoing.

Walking along train tracks at the wrong time is normally a mistake you only get to make once.
