MofW Employee Killed

CSX railroad worker was struck and killed by a train Friday morning near a main street in Estill, officials said Friday afternoon.

The CSX employee was identified as John Youmans, who worked out of Yemassee, according to a statement from CSX.

Youmans died in the incident after 10 a.m. on tracks near Martin Luther King Boulevard, Hampton County Coroner Ernie Washington Sr. told The Island Packet on Friday.

He was performing maintenance on the railroad tracks at the time he was killed, CSX officials said in a media statement.


Where'd those guys go?

Pretty sad that. Ten years on the railroad, and end up killed by your employer while doing your job. What's wrong when your outfit's train takes you out for good! Leaving a wife, and three kids. Damn!


Oops, 504!

Something did not respond fast enough,
that's all we know...
