GARRETT PARK - An unidentified man was struck and killed yesterday morning by a CSX freight train traveling between Rockville and Silver Spring, a spokesman for the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service said.

Pete Piringer, the spokesman, said the man was seen on the tracks about 6:20 a.m., 1,000 feet from the Garrett Park metro station, when he was struck. The train came to a stop moments later, Piringer said. He said CSX and MARC train service was delayed for about two hours while railroad and county police investigated the apparent accident.
