WASHINGTON (AP) - A lawyer representing the family of a woman killed earlier this month in an accident on Metro says he’ll file a lawsuit over the incident later this week.

Patrick Regan said Tuesday that he expected to file a lawsuit in federal court in Washington by the end of the week.

Regan represents the family of Carol Glover, who died during the Jan. 12 accident on Metro’s yellow line. Glover was one of the passengers on a train that was stuck in a subway tunnel after an electrical malfunction. The malfunction sent smoke into the train as well as the nearby L’Enfant Plaza station. Glover died of acute respiratory failure due to smoke exposure.

Regan says the accident was “completely foreseeable.”
