All southbound MARC Camden Line trains are stopping at Greenbelt Wednesday morning due to a CSX Transportation train fatally striking a pedestrian near Riverdale, the Maryland Transit Administration said.
The agency said the trains will terminate at Greenbelt and drop off passengers to catch the Washington Metro. The MTA also encouraged passengers to use equivalent Penn Line trains.
All Camden Line tickets are being honored on Penn Line trains.
MARC did not release details of the incident.
A spokesman for CSX said a freight train treveling from Selkirk, N.Y. to Richmond struck a pedestrian near the College Park MARC station around 6:45 a.m. Wednesday. The train was pulled by two locomotives and included a total of 61 cars carrying a variety of items, including paper products, lumber and PVC pellets, according to CSX spokesman Rob Doolittle.
The train was not damaged, and no injuries were reported on board the train.
Prince George's County Police are investigating how the pedestrian ended up on the tracks, Doolittle said.
