metro worker hit

The Red Line Southbound is closed at Dupont Circle.

Fire truck radio and British tourists say a worker was hit just as the train was leaving the station.

Metro has closed the turnstiles but gawkers can still take the escalators down to look.

Update: Channel 4 reports the worker was killed in the accident. Condolences to his friends and family.
