Person Struck by VRE Train; Major Delays for Commuters

Trains are delayed on VRE's Fredericksburg Line after a pedestrian was fatally struck by a train Monday morning.

Bryan Jungwirth, a spokesman for VRE, says the person was struck south of Leeland Road at about 5:10 a.m. 

Both tracks were shut down following the incident. Jungwirth says one track reopened around 8 a.m.

Riders can expect a two-hour delay. The incident also delayed several Amtrak trains. Metro can be used as an alternate travel option. 

Jungwirth says Virginia State Police and Stafford County authorities are investigating.

Trains 324 and 326 on the Manassas Line are also experiencing delays.
