Washington Metro warns of delays and crowded conditions Monday afternoon on Orange, Blue and Silver lines after two trains collided between Foggy Bottom and West Farragut.
As of 5:30 am, three lines were running trains every 15 minutes. Trains of orange and blue lines are the only connection between Farragut West and Macpherson Square. Silver Line trains operate only between Ville Reston East and Balston to reduce delays on other routes.
Metro asks passengers to consider alternate routes during the second hour of rush hour, with one track expected to affect all three lines by Monday's close. The promise of an hour of subway rush will be kept during the morning trip, but it will be stopped on three lines to date.
Two trains were treated for life-threatening injuries after their trains soon joined the rear-end collision by Monday, Monday, according to a Washington Metro statement.
Two trains were traveling east from Foggy Bottom towards Faragut West. They failed and moved to the appropriate railway yards. The only person in each train was the operator.
Subway reports that trains did not go. No damage was reported to the tunnel and its infrastructure
