MARC train service was suspended on the Camden line between Baltimore and Washington after a person was struck by a CSX Corp. freight train in Laurel, a MARC official said.

Service was halted in both directions about 2:30 p.m., said Cheron Wicker, a spokeswoman for the Maryland Transit Administration in Baltimore. The MARC train travels between Oriole Park at Camden Yards and Union Station, she said.

No information was available on the victim, she said. MTA officials could not estimate when service would be restored, Wicker said.

MARC was arranging shuttle-bus service for passengers in Greenbelt traveling north, Wicker said. Passengers also should use the Penn line, which travels from Penn Station to Union Station, she said.

The incident was under investigation, she said.
