15-Year-Old Killed By Train While On Bicycle

DERRY, Pa. (AP) - A 15-yearold western Pennsylvania boy is dead after being run over by a freight train seconds after he stepped away from another train running on an opposite track.

Derry Police Sgt. James Friscarella says Douglas Albright Jr. apparently thought there was only one train coming. He stepped off that track directly onto the one where another train was coming in the opposite direction.

Derry is a town about 45 miles east of Pittsburgh.

Albright died in a Latrobe hospital about an hour after the 9:25 a.m. accident on Thursday.
