1 Dead After Being Hit by Amtrak Train in Maryland

ODENTON, Md. (AP) — Service on a commuter rail line that takes passengers from Maryland into the District of Columbia has been suspended after a person was fatally struck by an Amtrak train.

News outlets report that the person was struck Wednesday morning in Odenton. The Maryland Transit Administration says on Twitter that the MARC Penn Line is temporarily shut down due to police activity.

The Maryland Transit Administration says there’s no estimate as to when service will be restored. The agency says Metro will honor MARC tickets and that MARC’s Camden Line, which also takes passengers from Maryland into the District of Columbia, is operating as normal.
