Emergency Crews Respond to Injured Person on Railroad Tracks at Nicholson Lane Overpass

Montgomery County Fire and Rescue emergency crews responded to an injured person on railroad tracks between Kensington and Rockville on Thursday night around 10:00 p.m.

MCFRS Spokesperson Pete Piringer said it appears that the person either fell or jumped off the Nicholson Lane overpass onto the tracks. A pedestrian on the overpass heard moans and shouts from the injured person and called 911. Piringer says the person, described as a young adult, was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Authorities say the incident caused railroad traffic to stop in both directions temporarily; however, it is back open again. No further details about the injured person have been released yet.
