Amtrak train kills man near Aberdeen
An Amtrak Acela train struck and killed a man near Aberdeen about 2 p.m., according to the Maryland Transit Administration, disrupting traffic on the Northeast Corridor and MARC Penn Line.
The 2:50 p.m. Penn Line train leaving Perryville for Washington has been delayed indefinitely. Two northbound Penn Line trains -- those scheduled to leave Union Station at 4:46 p.m. and 5:10 p.m. have been canceled. MARC was hoping to get riders heading for stations north of Baltimore on a later train once the tracks reopen.
Few details about the incident were available as of 4:10 p.m. The fatality would be the second involving an Amtrak train in Maryland in as many weeks. Last week, 14-year-old Anna Marie Stickel was killed when she was struck by a Northeast Regional train while walking along the tracks in Middle River.
