Man struck by train in Germantown
A man was struck by a train and seriously injured Wednesday afternoon, near a housing complex in Germantown, authorities said.
Just before 5 p.m., rescue crews were called to the 18600 block of Waring Station Road for the report of a pedestrian being struck by a train, said Capt. Oscar Garcia, a fire department spokesman. Rescuers worked with residents and police and found the man near Bent Willow Circle, a road in a housing complex near the railroad tracks.
The man was conscious but had sustained multiple fractures. His injuries were described as serious and potentially life threatening, Garcia said.
No further details about the cause of the incident could be immediately learned.
