MTA: MARC Penn Lines Running Again After Accident
BALTIMORE (AP) — The Maryland Transit Administration says the MARC Penn Line has reopened between Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport and Baltimore following an accident that temporarily halted traffic.
The agency says an Amtrak train struck a person on the tracks Thursday morning.
Amtrak spokeswoman Danelle Hunter says the pedestrian survived and was taken to a hospital, but she did not know the victim’s identity or condition. Hunter says the accident occurred about 11:30 a.m. and none of the more than 100 passengers aboard the train from Washington to New York was injured.
Hunter says Amtrak service was not affected.
