Summer of horrors continues on D.C. transit
The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority reports that a contractor was killed Tuesday morning in an electrocution accident at its Bladensburg bus depot in Northeast Washington. Meanwhile, a crack was found in the track on the Metrorail Red Line.
It was just last week that a man apparently committed suicide by placing himslef on the tracks at the West Falls Chruch station in Virginia. Earlier in the summer, a Metro employee was killed on the job. And of the course the worst was the June 22 crash of two trains on the Red Line that left nine dead.
If that wasn't enough, last week brought the news of the firings of two bus operators for serious infractions.
When will it all end?
