An adult male was struck by a train at Fort Totten shortly after noon, leading to delays on the Green and Yellow Lines, according to Metro.
Normal service was restored by 1:45 p.m., though residual delays are expected to linger until shortly after 2 p.m., Metro reported.
The person, who was struck on the outbound track at the station, intentionally placed himself in front of the train, said Dan Stessel, Metro’s chief spokesman. He said that the man, who sustained a head injury, was in stable condition at an area hospital as of 2 p.m.
Trains were initially sharing a track between Georgia Avenue and West Hyattsville on both lines. Following that, Green Line trains began skipping Fort Totten, while Yellow Line trains were only running between Huntington and Mt. Vernon Square. Trains are now servicing all stations, though again, some residual delays could remain.
Metro said there has been five suicides so far this year where people jumped in front of trains. It comes after Metro had launched a campaign to try to raise awareness and help prevent suicides with ads on trains and in stations and public service announcements.
