GAITHERSBURG, Md. (AP) – Investigators say a man who was wearing
headphones was hit and killed by a freight train early today.
Twenty-nine-year-old Daniel Snoddy was found by the tracks near
the 11-thousand-500 block of Game Preserve Road in Gaithersburg.
Police say he died at the scene.
This morning’s incident caused delays on the MARC Brunswick
Line, but normal service is expected this afternoon.
It’s the latest incident involving trains in Montgomery County.
On March first, an Amtrak train hit two men as they walked along
the tracks in Rockville. One died on the spot, while police
announced today that the other has since died. And less than a
month ago, a man was hit and killed by a train in Kensington.
