WASHINGTON -- Authorities say a six-car train has collided with another train near the Washington and Maryland border, killing at least one person.
D.C. fire spokesman Alan Etter says at least one person was killed and that this is developing into a "mass casualty event." He says crews are cutting apart the trains to get people out. He says there are severe injuries, but no indication how many.
Spokeswoman Taryn McNeil says the collision happened about 5 p.m. between the Fort Totten and Takoma Park stations on Metro's red line. The collision happened during rush hour on the transit agency's busiest rail line. the rest
