  GAITHERSBURG, Md. (AP) - A Metro transit employee has been struck by a train at a rail yard in suburban Maryland.
 
     Metro says the worker, a mechanic who's been with the transit agency for more than 25 years, suffered serious injuries and was flown to a trauma center. The man was pinned under a train for about an hour before crews could free him.
 
     The accident occurred shortly before 1 p.m. Tuesday at the Shady Grove rail yard, where trains are brought overnight and brought in for maintenance. The train was not in service.
 
     The accident is under investigation, and the National Transportation Safety Board has been notified.
