Green Line trains single-tracking after person struck at Waterfront station

For the second day in a row, a person has been truck by a Metro train, this time at the Green Line’s Waterfront-SEU station, the transit agency said.

The incident occurred at 5:18 p.m. Thursday and appeared to be intentional on the part of the unidentified person who was stuck by the train, which was bound for the Branch Avenue station, Metro said. No further details were immediately available.

Trains headed in both directions on the Green Line were using a single track between the Navy Yard and L’Enfant Plaza stations while the incident was being investigated.

On Wednesday afternoon, a woman was injured at the Rhode Island Avenue station after intentionally putting herself in the path of a Red Line train, Metro said.
