2009 metro crash
Four years ago Saturday, 9 people were killed in the worst accident in D.C. Metro’s history.
It’s been three-and-a-half years since the worst crash in Metro history left nine dead and dozens injured, and the transit agency has finally released some information about payouts made in relation to the Red Line collision.
The nine people killed in a Metrorail crash in June 2009 in northeast Washington will be honored with a plaque near the crash site.
A makeshift memorial of flowers, candles and pictures has stood on the Charles A. Langley Bridge for years, but the District wants to construct a proper memorial in an adjacent neighborhood, to commemorate the deadliest accident in Metro’s history.
