COMMUTING: Person, Car Fall Onto Tracks, Delays Trains

The Washington Post reports in its Metro briefs that Amtrak and MARC trains were delayed yesterday because of obstacles on the tracks. At New Carrollton, a woman fell off the platform and beneath an Amtrak train, suffering minor injuries.

While that incident caused only a brief delay, later on, MARC and Amtrak trains were significantly delayed after a car drove down an embankment and blocked the tracks for about 90 minutes. The driver of the car fled after driving down from New York Avenue.
