WASHINGTON (AP) — Officials said Wednesday a woman has been struck by a Metro train at the Mount Vernon Square/Seventh Street/Convention Center station on the Green and Yellow lines.

Trains are being stopped in both directions Wednesday afternoon and aren’t passing through the station as rescue crews try to free the woman, who is under the train. Rescuers are shutting down power to one of the lines.

D.C. fire department spokesman Pete Piringer said the woman is alive. It’s not clear how she ended up on the tracks.
