City Paper is not for tourists
Metro sent out a release today about a delay in service on the red line. A man was hit around 1:45 on the tracks near the Wheaton station. The release goes on to state about how trains are sharing a track, shuttle bus service was activated, regular rail service to resume momentarily.
Hey, Metro? What about the guy? Turns out that required a phone call. A press officer said “he was alive when they took him” and that the man is believed to have been on the track intentionally.
