The District of Columbia Metro reported Monday that a pedestrian who was struck by a train “appears to have intentionally” put herself in its path.
“Orange Line service is disrupted between Virginia Square and East Falls Church due to a person struck by train at Ballston Station,” says the official DC Metro website.
“The female appears to have intentionally placed herself in the path of an arriving inbound Orange Line train. Rescue personnel are on the scene at this time.”
Metro says they have had to “temporarily suspend service between Clarendon and East Falls Church” for the “protection” of the rescue workers attending to the situation.
In October of 2012, a man was struck and killed by a train at the Farragut North station.
