Metro says at least three of its rail cars were damaged beyond repair in a weekend crash that injured three workers.
The transit agency says a six-car subway train was returning to the West Falls Church Rail Yard when it rear-ended a parked six-car train early Sunday.
Three employees were treated for minor injuries at a nearby hospital and released. No passengers were on board.
Metro says three of the cars are beyond repair. The agency is still determining whether the remaining nine cars can be fixed.
There's no total estimate of damage yet, but new rail cars cost about $3 million each.
This weekend's crash is the latest in a series of recent accidents for Metro. The worst was the crash on the Red Line in June that killed eight passengers and a train operator.
