Trains shared a track on the Orange, Silver and Blue lines on Thursday evening after a person was struck by a train, officials said Thursday. Arlington Fire officials later said the person who was struck had died.

At around 6:45 p.m., Metro tweeted that trains were single-tracking between the Clarendon and Foggy Bottom stations on the Orange and Silver lines and between the Arlington Cemetery and Foggy Bottom stations on the Blue Line after the person was struck at the Court House station.

Metro officials said they believe the person purposely entered the tracks as the train was coming.
