Person dies after being struck by Metro train

Metro service through the Farragut West station was suspended for more than two hours Monday after a person was fatally struck.

Normal service resumed on Metro’s Orange, Blue and Silver lines at 3:40 p.m. after about 25 minutes of single-tracking through the busy corridor.

Farragut West had been closed since about 1 p.m., when the person was struck at the station.

Metro spokesman Ian Jannetta said the person died of the injuries. Metro said video showed the person intentionally entered the path of the train.

Rail service was suspended between Foggy Bottom and McPherson Square during the closure, with Silver Line trains operating only between Wiehle-Reston East and Ballston.

Shooting, stabbing at separate Metro stations

Two people were stabbed and a shooting was reported at two different Metro stations on Sunday, authorities said.

Around 7:30 p.m. at the Waterfront station in Southwest, there was a fight on a train, and two people were stabbed, Metro officials said. One victim went to a nearby fire station for help. Another person, who police said was a juvenile, was also hurt.

Both were taken to hospitals with injuries that weren’t life-threatening.

Earlier Sunday, Metro Transit Police said they responded to a report of shots fired around 3:45  p.m. at the Anacostia station. A video from the station “may have captured the suspect vehicle” involved in the incident, said Ron Holzer, a Metro spokesman.

Officials said no one was injured in the shooting at the Anacostia station.

No arrests were made in either incident.

Driver killed while fleeing attempted stop

The driver of an SUV was killed in a crash early Monday after fleeing from an attempted traffic stop in Prince George’s County, police said.

Jennifer Sorto, 30, of Woodbridge, Va., died after the vehicle struck a parked car, skidded sideways and flipped over before striking a house, police said.

The incident happened about 12:30 a.m. at the intersection of College Heights Drive and Steed Court.

Police said they did not pursue the vehicle, but they searched for it after it left an attempted stop near Adelphi Road and Van Buren Street. Police said officers attempted to stop the vehicle because it appeared the driver was not wearing a seat belt.

No injuries were reported in the house. A passenger in the SUV suffered minor injuries, police said.
