Not sure if you've seen this in the news, but we had a major Metro Rail collison yesterday in DC on the "Red Line."

Terrible! Such a tragic, awful accident. I watched a news report and one passenger recounted walking 20 minutes with a group that included a pregnant woman

Accidents like these are always so senseless and hard to come to terms with. After college, I spent six months working in London which meant time spent lots of time on the extensive underground system; I can only imagine the horror that must come from experiencing such a tragedy in some aspect of daily life. My thoughts are with everyone somehow affected by this.

I hope all of your loved ones are well, Linda.

Our on the spot reporter!

Thank you for posting this link to the Washington Post article on this tragedy. The NTSB is often accused of taking too long for results on this type of investigation. But how long is too long when lives have been lost?
