MARC train collides with truck in Silver Spring (Photo)

Update: 6:53 PM

A MARC commuter train has struck a track maintenance vehicle at the Forest Glen Road railroad crossing at Seminary Road in Silver Spring. The vehicle is being described as CSX railroad equipment, not a private vehicle. Mike Murillo of WTOP is reporting the vehicle has now been removed from the tracks.

Avoid the area, as road closures are in effect.

There is still no word on injuries as of 6:53 PM.

A hazmat crew has been deployed to deal with diesel fuel spilled on the railbed.

All Brunswick line MARC service is suspended, according to the Maryland Transit Administration.
