Metro has just announced that the train operator involved in the February 12 post-Snowpocalypse train derailment at Farragut North has been fired for “failure to follow standard operating procedures.” She had been placed on administrative leave immediately following the accident, which is normal in such situations, but has been terminated effective today.
