Man struck by train at Mount Vernon Square Metro station; station has reopened

The Mount Vernon Square Metro station at 7th Street NW and the Convention Center has reopened after a man was struck by a train earlier Sunday afternoon, but Metro users should expect delays.

Metro spokeswoman Caroline Laurin said the man was struck around 12:42 p.m. Sunday. The victim was removed from under the train and transported to a nearby hospital where his condition was unknown.

Laurin said trains in and out of the station will be delayed temporarily as trains are relegated to a single track while authorities investigate the incident.
