At least four people were killed and nine others injured Monday evening after two subway trains collided during rush hour in Washington, D.C. – one victim, a female Metro train operator. Two Red Line commuter trains collide and derail near Washington, D.C. According to an update posted on the Metro website, there are at least “100 injuries, many serious, according to preliminary reports.” At a press conference near the scene, D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty called it the “deadliest accident in the history of our Metro train system.” Metro General Manager John Catoe said the cause of the collision was undetermined. D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier discouraged family members from coming to the collision scene to retrieve loved ones, to avoid overwhelming emergency workers. Lanier advised concerned family members to call (202) 727-9099 for more information. Sources: http://www.abcnews.go.com/News/story?
