Default 2 DC Metro trains collide

Like two straws jammed together end to end - top one split and cored out.
Two dead reported so far.

They must have hit at high speed.




There will be many, many serious injuries.

4 confirmed fatalities ..."Scores of injured"
...per mayor's press conference at the scene

Fire Chief: 200 firefighters at the scene, still looking for trapped people.



One train was stopped, next train came up behind it and collided from rear.

Female train operator one of the fatalities.

Wow

What a shame. Very few words to describe feelings when something like that happens.
