A metro employee was killed this weekend as he was conducting maintenance on the orange line.  The individual died on Sunday evening after he was struck by a piece of machinery that lays gravel along the tracks.  Metro halted service between West Falls and Vienna after the accident, but service resumed this morning. WMATA can’t seem to catch a break, this summer.

Since graduating, he’s nabbed a job with the Fed and spends most of his free time hunting for cheap thrills in the city. Find out why he loves DC.
