WASHINGTON — Metro officials say riders can expect major delays on the red line after a woman was struck by a train and due to track maintenance.

Transit agency spokeswoman Candace Smith says a woman was hit and killed by a train at the Bethesda station at about 1 p.m. Sunday. Authorities say it appears the woman intentionally put herself on the tracks.

Smith says trains are single tracking between Friendship Heights and Medical Center. Because of the incident and scheduled maintenance, delays are likely throughout the afternoon.
