A person died after being struck by a Metrorail train at the Gallery Place/Chinatown station Monday morning.

Metro officials said a preliminary review of video footage shows the individual was unsteady before falling off the platform.

The train struck the person just before 6 a.m.

Officials have not released any information about the identity of the person.

Metrorail trains ran on single track on the Green and Yellow lines for about four hours and bypassed the Gallery Place station.
