According to DC Fire & EMS Twitter, a freight train and an empty MARC train collided (WTOP describes it as a “bump”) near the 900 block of 2nd Street NE around 9:20 this morning, causing a derailment. While the freight train appears to be empty too, HAZMAT, tech rescue, and mass casualty units have been dispatched just in case. So far 4-5 minor injuries have been treated.

MARC service on the Penn line has been suspended and Metro is honoring MARC tickets.
