Metro: Man injured after jump from Va. parking garage

A man jumped off the fourth level of the Metro parking garage at the Franconia-Springfield station Tuesday, according to transit officials.

The incident happened around 12:15 p.m. Tuesday. The man’s name was not released and he was said to have suffered “non-life threatening” injuries, according to Cathy Asato, a Metro spokeswoman.

She said he was taken to an area hospital and that he appeared to have intentionally jumped from the parking garage.

On Friday, a man fell down an escalator at the Rosslyn station. Metro officials said the man told them he had been drinking several alcoholic beverages before the incident. The man was treated and released at an area hospital.
