Man Struck By Train at Rosslyn Metro Station

Metro logoA man suffered a non-life-threatening injury in an apparent suicide attempt at the Rosslyn Metro station this morning (Sunday).

Around 10:30 a.m., a man “intentionally placed himself in path of arriving Blue Line train at Rosslyn,” according to WMATA’s Twitter account. The train operator applied the emergency brakes and the man only suffered a non-life-threatening leg injury, according to Metro spokesman Dan Stessel.

The man was transported to George Washington University hospital.

Blue and Orange Line trains were single-tracking between the Clarendon and Foggy Bottom Metro stations after the accident. Normal two-track operations resumed around 11:45 a.m., but residual delays were reported.
