A Green Line train has derailed near the West Hyattsville station around 5 p.m. Friday evening. The derailment shut down service between Fort Totten and Prince George's Plaza, and shuttle buses are substituting for trains in that area.
All passengers were evacuated from the incident train, and there here are no reported injuries.
In addition to significant delays on the Green Line due to the derailment, Metro has imposed an immediate 35 mph speed restriction on trains operating in all above-ground territory. As a result, Metrorail customers will experience delays on all lines.
Virginia's attorney general Ken Cuccinelli will face former Democratic National Committee chairman Terry McAuliffe in November to become Virginia's 72nd governor.
