Police have identified the victim struck by an Amtrak train this afternoon in Precinct 11/Essex as Kenneth Joseph Grabenstein, 55, of Delaware.

BCoPD officers responded at 11:12 a.m. to the railroad tracks along Orems Road near Entrance Road, where they found the victim dead on the scene. Witnesses, including the train engineer, said they saw the victim standing in the middle of the tracks, facing the train as it approached. The engineer said he was unable to stop the train, which was traveling at 135 mph. Police say the incident may have been a suicide.

Amtrak Police will handle any additional investigation of this incident.
