A man was struck by a train in Montgomery County.

County fire department spokesman Capt. Oscar Garcia

Cays crews were called just before 5 p.m. Wednesday. Garcia said they are at Bent Willow Circle in Germantown and working to rescue the man.

He said the man is conscious and has some fractures.

Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari said the train was traveling from Washington to Chicago. Magliari said the man had been trespassing on the tracks owned by CSX. He said the train will be delayed until authorities clear the area.

MARC's Brunswick Line trains are not running. Shuttle bus service is being set up, and Metro is honoring Brunswick Line tickets.
