BETHEL – Police Chief Alan Carr said Monday night that he is awaiting the results of an autopsy on the body of Scott Libby of Raymond, who was found in his car after it was struck by a train Friday morning.

The death of Libby, 25, who owned a landscaping business, is under investigation, Carr said. His body was taken to the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Augusta, he said, and results are expected late this week.

Libby’s compact car was parked on the railroad tracks about 200 feet from the Barker Road rail crossing when it was struck about 3 a.m. by a westbound St. Lawrence and Atlantic freight train from behind, police said. A railroad official said the car was not running and did not have any lights on at the time.

Fire Chief Mike Jodrey said last Friday that the car “looks like someone had rear-ended it at a stop sign,” not hit it with a freight train.
