Woman who jumped in front of Metro train remains hospitalized

A 47-year-old woman remained hospitalized on Thursday after intentionally jumping in front of a train at the Tenleytown Metro station Wednesday night, transit officials said.

Caroline Lukas, a Metro spokeswoman, said the woman is being treated for serious leg injuries.

The woman was struck by a Red Line train heading toward Glenmont around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday. The incident forced single-track operations, creating delays of 15 to 20 minutes between the Van Ness and Friendship Heights stations.
