LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — A man is dead after being struck by an Orange Line Metro train traveling between the East Falls Church and Ballston stations shortly before 2 a.m. Sunday.

That portion of the track is above ground, in the median of I-66. There is fencing there to prevent pedestrians from entering the area.

A Metro spokesperson says none of the 8 passengers on the train were injured. Orange Line service has since returned to normal.

An investigation is ongoing.
