DC Metro wreck ... 7 confirmed dead

[UPDATE Tuesday: 7 confirmed dead; dozens injured. Red Line schedule severely adjusted. Deadliest Metro accident ever. Survivor accounts of accident. Investigation begins.]

Two D.C. Metro trains crashed into one another at 5:00 pm Monday causing two deaths and unknown injuries. Fox News film footage shows it appears to have happened outside. A similar wreck inside the tunnels could have caused far more damage and possibly more deaths. Many times we have ridden the Metro and it has always been a safe experience. Our sympathies with the families of those involved.

They are lying about the number of confirmed deaths. It was more than 12 before they found at least one more body yesterday. They still haven’t been able to completely enter the accordion-like damaged car.
