DC Metro train derails on Red Line; no injuries or fire

60 aboard Metro train that derailed outside DC’s Farragut North station

A Metro Red Line train with about 60 people on board derailed Monday morning between the Metro Center and Farragut North stations, Metro and D.C. Fire and EMS said.

Metro tweeted that all passengers have been safely evacuated from the train.

The crash happened at around 7:30 on Monday morning to a train on the Red Line.

"If I'm coming in and it's delayed I might as well just Uber, because if the Metro is delayed you never know when your train is going to come", Metro rider Carey Dunde said.

Metro turned off the electrified third rail as first responders assisted passengers out of the tunnel, according to The Washington Post. After being stuck on the train for more than an hour, 63 passengers were able to walk through the tunnel to safety. Federal government offices and many other business are closed Monday due to the holiday. Wiedefeld said he now believes a steel rail cracked, causing the derailment. Bus shuttles bridged several stations, including Dupont Circle, Farragut North and Metro Center. "It's a 40-year-old system that needs dedicated funding in order to pull out of its current state".
