Orange Line Station Reopens Hours After Woman Steps in Train’s Path

LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC)– The Ballston station on Metro’s Orange Line is now open after being shuttered for several hours when a woman was struck and killed by an incoming train Monday morning.

When service first resumed, trains were running on a single track between the East Falls Church and Virginia Square stations, so there are residual delays. Trains are currently running on both tracks. A police investigation is ongoing.

Metro says the woman intentionally placed herself in the path of an incoming train at the Ballston station in Arlington shortly before noon Monday.
