LAUREL, Md. (WUSA9) -- A 19-year-old was found dead on train tracks in Maryland on Tuesday, police said.

The body of Dontay Lamont Owensby, 19, was found by two teenagers who passed the CSX train tracks near the 800 block of Lafayette Street around 7:30 p.m. The injuries appear to show that he was hit by a train, officials said.

A MARC commuter train operator said that a person matching the description of Owensby was seen "running along the tracks" and filed a 'suspicious person' report.  

Rail traffic was closed in both directions until 10:30 p.m. Tuesday night.

According to Police, Owensby had been killed after an unknown train hit him. The investigation is still currently underway.
