A woman was struck by a Metro train at the Cleveland Park station on the Red Line, according to WMATA.

Metro Police report that an adult female was struck, and that she intentionally placed herself in the path of the train. District firefighters are responding.

The District Fire Department tweeted that the woman was retrieved from under the train. The condition of the woman is unknown at this time.

The station was initially closed, but has since been reopened.

Trains were initially single-tracking between Van Ness and Dupont Circle as they bypassed the Cleveland Park station. Service is back to normal, but delays are expected to continue into the afternoon.
