Man injured after jumping in front of Metro
Question of the Day
A man was treated for multiple injuries after intentionally trying to jump in front of an Metro train going toward Shady Grove at Union Station Monday morning, officials said.
"It appears he was intending to put himself in front of the train, but was unsuccessful," said Philip Stewart, a WMATA spokesman.
At about 10:50 a.m., the man hit the front left corner of the train and was subsequently thrown back to the side of the platform, Mr. Stewart said.
He said D.C. police and medical personnel transported the man, who was "conscious and alert," to a hospital for multiple injuries, one of which was to the leg.
After the incident, trains bypassed the Union Station stop from 11 a.m. to 11:20 a.m., Mr. Stewart said. Trains single tracked for about 45 minutes before normal service resumed shortly after noon.
