COLUMBUS: A 16-year-old boy is in critical condition in a Columbus hospital after being struck by a train in Marion.

Police say Tyler Kinney was hit just after 8 p.m. Wednesday in an area of Marion where there are four train tracks.

Marion Police Lt. Jon Shaffer tells The Columbus Dispatch (bit.ly/17l89TI) that the teen was struck while waiting for a train to pass. He was wearing headphones and apparently didn’t notice another train on the track behind him.
