WAPAKONETA — A CSX railroad engineer was killed this morning in an accident on the CSX railroad tracks near Taylor Road close to the Auglaize-Shelby County border just off of County Road 25A.

Auglaize County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Sheriff Mike Eberle said the train was stopped before the accident. He said no other information was currently available as investigators examine the scene. He said information would be released later today after investigation.

Auglaize County Sheriff’s Office deputies and the CSX investigators are jointly handling the investigation.
