I don’t usually commute via the Red line. But whoa. Watching a press conference. General Manager Catoe seems to be vehement that the trains were not single tracking.
I was in SW DC when this happened (at happy hour!) and was actually in a place with a TV tuned to local news… and around 5:40 Breaking News alerts started coming in.
oddly enough never saw a metro alert that referred to the collision… only “mechanical difficulties” and “a police situation”.
