WASHINGTON — A person was hit by a Virginia Rail Express train on its Manassas Line Wednesday afternoon, causing delays on the line for hours.

VRE said a person was hit near Manassas Park around 3:30 p.m., but officials have not yet released details about the person’s injuries.

Service in the Manassas Line is only going as far as the Burke Center station, where bus service will pick up.

Metro will also accept VRE passes. VRE is warning riders to expect delays while the investigation continues through the evening.

The VRE incident happened less than a day after two CSX workers were fatally struck by an Amtrak train just north of Union Station. The fatal collision on Tuesday night led to suspended service, delays and disruptions on both the Amtrak and MARC lines into Wednesday morning.
