Teen struck by Amtrak train while walking to school
Baltimore County police have identified the person struck by an Amtrak train Tuesday morning as 14-year-old Ann Marie Stickle of Middle River.
Cpl. Michael Hill said Stickle and a teenage friend were walking to school on a southbound train track just outside Baltimore when an Amtrak train on a parallel track approached them from behind. Hill said Stickle's friend apparently heard the train and was able to jump off the track. Stickle, who was listening to music through earphones, did not hear the train approach.
She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Trains along Amtrak's Northeast Corridor were delayed after Amtrak police and local authorities suspended rail traffic in both directions for about an hour Tuesday morning.
