Train Fatally Strikes Man in Pickaway County
PICKAWAY COUNTY (Ken Hines) -- Deputies believe a man's body remained undiscovered for several hours after he was struck by a train Thursday night near Ashville.
The body of David Bontrager was found on tracks south of Wagon Road at approximately 7:45 a.m. Friday.
Deputies believe Bontrager was walking along the tracks when he was struck. The conductor of that train would not have realized that Bontrager had been hit, and thus would not have stopped after the accident, according to investigators.
Bontrager was carrying a music player with headphones when he was killed, which may have prevented him from hearing the train.
