07:23 pm: Fatal DC Metro Train Collision
ETA: Red Line!

This happened about 5pm ET. A trailing train on the red line ran up under the last two cars of the train in front of it, which was stopped (the reason isn't known yet). Four people are dead, including the operator of the trailing train, two with potentially-fatal injuries, twelve with moderate injuries, and the other 50-or-so (the firefighters aren't sure they've found everybody) are walking-wounded. Metro's worst incident in their history. The police chief has strongly told people not to come down and try to find their relatives because it will just make things worse. She gave out a phone number for those folks to call.
