HANOVER, VA (WWBT) - CSX Employee Marshall W. Conner was killed Thursday morning while working on a CSX facility just north of Doswell Road in Hanover County.
54-year-old Conner was on foot inspecting the brakes on a stationary train at approximately 10:15 a.m. when another northbound train struck him. Conner was pronounced deceased at the scene.
The northbound train, pulling 37 railcars and hauling orange juice to Philadelphia, blew its horn as it traveled through the rail yard. Conner was working in the narrow lane between the stationary train and the moving train when he was struck.
