Man hit, thrown onto tracks in Kensington

By Washington Post editors

Train tracks in the Kensington area have reopened following a 25-minute shut-down to allow Montgomery County firefighters to remove a man who had been thrown onto the tracks after being hit by a vehicle nearby, authorities said.

The man, whose name was not released, has serious but not life-threatening injuries, said Capt. Oscar Garcia, spokesman for Montgomery's Fire Rescue Service. The man is in his mid-30s, Garcia said.

Metropolitan Avenue, which was closed at Edgewood Road following the 9 a.m. pedestrian accident, also has reopened, Montgomery police said.

The track closure between Kensington and Forest Glen affected CSX and MARC trains, but there were no significant train delays, Garcia said.

This is an example of Einstein's Double Whammy Theory of hit objects.
