D.C. Metro Red Line Derails, Collides With Another Train


A Red Line train on the Washington, D.C., Metro system derailed today and crashed into an oncoming train, leaving at least one commuter dead, and many more trapped and injured. The trains, which were near the Shady Grove Station by the Maryland-D.C. border at the time of the accident, are “lodged on top of one another,” D.C. Fire and EMS spokesman Alan Etter says. Crews are working on the scene now. [WTOP]
