Man struck by light rail over weekend recovering

A 49-year-old man is recovering from multiple broken bones and fractures after being struck by a light rail train in North Baltimore on Saturday night, according to a Maryland Transit Administration spokesman.

Emergency responders were called to the tracks just south of the Woodberry station about 8:45 p.m. Saturday and found the injured man, who has not been publicly identified, said Terry Owens, administration spokesman.

The man had been "walking on or near the tracks" when he was struck by a northbound train, Owens said.

The man was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center with non-life-threatening injuries, Owens said.

The incident caused temporary delays on the transit system, Owens said.

"We encourage people always to be mindful of trains and strongly discourage anyone from walking in or on a track," Owens said.
