6:25 A.M. Update:

MARC Penn Line train 511 was expected to run at least 20 to 25 minutes late due to a disabled Amtrak train.

However, it will be one car short, so expect additional crowding.

6:10 A.M. Update:

An accident has been reported on I-295 South at the South Capitol Street exit, according to the D.C. police.
