MARC Brunswick Line Reopens After Man Hit By Train

ROCKVILLE, Md. - The MARC Brunswick line and a busy section of Randolph Road in Rockville have reopened after being shut down after a man was hit by a freight train. Montgomery County Police say the man was hit by a CSX freight train around 2 p.m. Wednesday near the Randolph Road and Nebel Street crossing. The Maryland Transit Administration says Metro will honor MARC tickets on the red line. Police spokesman Cpl. Dan Friz says the train stopped over the man's body and investigators had to get permission from the medical examiner before they can move the train to reach the body. Friz says preliminary witness accounts suggest the man committed suicide. SOURCE: FOX
