    Default MARC Train hits dump truck in Frederick Maryland

    Happened this morning, a MARC train hit a dump truck at the Route 85 grade crossing. No injuries on the train, but the truck driver was injured. This road is a busy commuter route in the morning, but it is also used daily by CSX frieghts on the Old Main Line, and a handful of MARC trains going to and from Frederick to Point of Rocks.

    Wow. I was in that area just yesterday, watching the MARCs.

    I wonder what kind of damage it did to the engine....I bet it's sitting in Brunswick right now waiting to head to CU or something....-Jeffrey

    I didn't see much damage to either train, OR truck. Looked like the trucks front end was hit and it was towed away by a wrecker, so it could have been nearly stopped when hit.
