Marc Train

A MARC train conductor fell from one of the cars as the train was approaching the Dickerson station on its way to Washington, D.C. around 6:45 a.m. today.

According to MTA Spokesperson Paul Shephard, eyewitnesses said the conductor slipped and fell about ten feet as he was preparing to open the doors for arrival at the station.

Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Spokesperson Pete Piringer described the conductor’s injuries as serious but not life threatening.

There was about a 20-minute delay, Shephard said, as passengers from the 892 train were transferred to other trains.
