Service has resumed on Metros Blue and Orange lines after transit agency suffered another accident involving an employee earlier today.
An employee was struck by a train near the Braddock Road station in Virginia this morning. He was taken to a local hospital and Metro says he is in critical condition.
Metro says the employee is 44 years old and has worked for the transit agency for 11 years as a communications technician.
This is the fifth accident involving metro workers or subcontractors this summer. Last month two employees were killed on the job in separate incidents. In response to one of the deaths, Metro stepped up its safety procedures and ordered its employees to take refresher courses. Metro has notified the National Transportation Safety Board about the incident.
