ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA) -- Chief Fire Marshal Robert Rodriguez says that a person who was hit by a Metro train at the Van Dorn Street station on Friday morning has died.
It happened in the 5600 block of Eisenhower Ave. shortly before 7:15 a.m. Friday.
Metro says the preliminary investigation looks like the person, who has been identified only as an adult female, intentionally got in front of the train, but they continue to investigate the incident.
Transit police and EMS removed the person from under the train and authorities are waiting on a preliminary identification of the person.
Metro's Dan Stessel says that the train has been moved.
Blue line trains are still single tracking through the area but there are fewer delays.
