Best Train Wreck

When it comes to Metro, editorializing is scarcely necessary. A list will do. June 22: Nine die in Red Line crash. Nov. 29: Three Metro employees injured, three train cars destroyed in crash at West Falls Church rail yard. Damages figure in the $9 million range. Jan. 26: Maintenance truck hits and kills two workers who were installing safety equipment on tracks. Feb. 12: Red Line train derails near Farragut North. All 345 passengers are fine, save for a few “minor injuries.”
