Man struck by vehicle after stepping off bus at BWI train station

A man was struck by a vehicle after stepping off a bus near the BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport train station on Wednesday afternoon, according to Maryland Transportation Authority Police.

The driver of the vehicle was attempting to pass the bus when the incident occurred about 5:35 p.m. on Amtrak Way, a loop road near the BWI station that serves both Amtrak and MARC rail passengers, said 1st Sgt. Jonathan Green, a MdTA Police spokesman.

The man who was struck sustained non-life-threatening injuries but was transported to Maryland Shock Trauma Center as a precaution, Green said.

He did not yet know Wednesday evening whether charges would be filed against the driver.

The incident severely impacted commuter traffic at the station, but had been cleared as of 6:30 p.m., Green said.
