Man is killed when hit by Metro train at Waterfront station

A man was killed during Thursday evening’s rush hour when he was struck by a southbound Metro train at the Waterfront station, according to a Metro spokeswoman. That official said authorities believe the man intentionally jumped in front of the train.

The 5:30 p.m. incident caused delays along the Green line. Trains were single-tracking between stations at the Navy Yard and L’Enfant Plaza.

D.C. police said that at 6:30 p.m., Greenbelt-bound trains were bypassing the Waterfront and L’Enfant stations and that customers were being told to transfer at the Archives-Navy Memorial-Penn Quarter station and double back to reach either of those two stops.
