Man Struck By Train at Rosslyn Metro Station

Metro logo(Updated at 5:25 p.m.) An Arlington man suffered a non-life-threatening injury in an apparent suicide attempt at the Rosslyn Metro station this morning (Sunday).

Around 10:30 a.m., the 20-year-old Arlington resident “intentionally placed himself in path of arriving Blue Line train at Rosslyn,” according to Metro spokesman Dan Stessel. The train operator applied the emergency brakes and the man only suffered a non-life-threatening leg injury, Stessel said.

The man was transported to George Washington University hospital.

Blue and Orange Line trains were single-tracking between the Clarendon and Foggy Bottom Metro stations after the accident. Normal two-track operations resumed around 11:45 a.m., but residual delays were reported.
