According to Chief Spokesperson for Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Services Pete Piringer, a utility truck was struck by a train in the area of the Nebel St railroad crossing in Rockville around 7:30pm on Thursday evening. The truck ended up on the CSX railroad tracks between Randolph Rd & Nicholson Rd and the driver/occupant(s) of the vehicle reportedly left the scene before fire and rescue arrived. There have been no injuries reported.
According to Montgomery County Police, Randolph Rd. is closed between Nebel St. and Parklawn Dr. and drivers are to expect significant delays and are advised to seek an alternate route. CSX train traffic has also stopped. We will post an update when additional information becomes available.
