Orange Line: Woman Struck by Train

Heads up, Metro riders on the Orange Line: a woman was struck by a Metro train at Ballston station at 9:38 AM. Ballston and Virginia Square stations are closed now, with shuttles running between East Falls Church and Clarendon stations.

More from WaPo, NBC4, WJLA, and WTOP. Watch the Metrorail advisories for updates.

Update: Service alert for the orange line is gone. Anyone got horror stories?

Roving Asian mendicant, can occasionally be seen wandering the streets of downtown Washington, muttering unintelligible gibberish to passers-by while pushing a “bag lady” shopping cart full of old blankets, American flags, soda cans, and healthy secondhand snacks from organic food shop dumpsters. Used to live in a cardboard box at 16th and K but the rent was too expensive.
