The MARC Camden Line faced serious delays Monday evening after a pedestrian was struck and killed by a southbound train in Prince George's County, though the tracks were cleared and trains moving by about 8 p.m.
MARC train 855, en route from Washington D.C. to Baltimore, was involved in the crash just after 6 p.m. about a mile south of the Riverdale station, said Terry Owens, a Maryland Transit Administration spokesman.
Passengers on that train were still on board as county police investigated, Owens said. Three other trains were affected – two that had been waiting to depart from Union Station and another headed southbound into Washington.
