Associated Press District of Columbia Fire and Emergency workers at the site of a rush-hour collision between two Metro transit trains in northeast Washington, D.C. WASHINGTON -- A transit train smashed into the rear of another at the height of the capital city's Monday evening rush hour, killing at least six people and injuring scores of others as the front end of the trailing train jackknifed violently into the air and fell atop the first. Cars of both trains were ripped open and smashed together in the worst accident in the Metrorail system's 33-year history.
Metro chief John Catoe said the first train was stopped on the tracks, waiting for another to clear the station ahead, when the trailing train, one of the oldest in the Metro fleet, plowed into it from behind. More than 200 firefighters from Washington, Maryland and Virginia eventually converged on the scene. Webber raced to the scene after hearing a loud boom like a "thunder crash" and then sirens. Passenger Jodie Wickett, a nurse, told CNN she was seated on one train, sending text messages on her phone, when she felt the impact. One man said he was riding a bicycle across a bridge over the Metro tracks when the sound of the crash got his attention. Homeland Security Department spokeswoman Amy Kudwa said less than two hours after the crash that federal authorities had no indication of any terrorism connection.
Monday's crash was the third major subway or commuter rail crash in a big city in the past nine months.
No reason was given for the Washington crash, but some safety experts are concerned about the recent increase. However, Robert Lauby, a former NTSB rail investigator, said the increase in accidents could well be mere coincidence.
The only other time in Metrorail's 33-year history that there were passenger fatalities was on Jan.

The MTA said 151 people were hit by subway trains in 2013, resulting in 53 fatalities, which are two less than in 2012.
It was a less deadly year for New York Citya€™s millions of straphangers a€” but just barely.
As 2013 wound down Tuesday, the MTA said 151 people had been struck since January a€” a modest increase of 10, or 7%, compared with the previous year. The MTA last year launched an aggressive public awareness campaign stressing the importance of staying back from platform edges, Lisberg said.
The body of an apparent suicide victim is shown being brought up from a subway station in Times Square in January. The goal, officials said, is to detect when someone has left the platform a€” and then alert approaching motormen to hit the brakes. Transport Workers Union Local 100, which represents transit workers, has urged the MTA to direct motormen to slow down when entering stations.
The MTA last year launched an aggressive public awareness campaign stressing the importance of staying back from platform edges, a spokesman says. On average, 134 people were hit by subway trains and 41 killed each year between 2001 and 2012, according to an MTA analysis. About 35% of those hit by trains are classified by authorities as suicides or suicide attempts. Lisberg said the annual figures have fluctuated a€?somewhat randomlya€? over the last decade or so while ridership has increased significantly. WASHINGTON - A transit train smashed into the rear of another at the height of the capital city's Monday evening rush hour, killing at least six people and injuring scores of others as the front end of the trailing train jackknifed violently into the air and fell atop the first. Washington fire spokesman Alan Etter said crews had to cut some people out of what he described as a "mass casualty event." Rescue workers propped steel ladders up to the upper train cars to help survivors scramble to safety. Fire Chief Dennis Rubin said rescue workers treated 76 people at the scene and sent some of them to local hospitals, six with critical injuries. EDT (2100 GMT) took place on the system's red line, Metro's busiest, which runs below ground for much of its length but is at ground level at the accident site near the Maryland border in northeast Washington.


The National Transportation Safety Board took charge of the investigation and sent a team to the site. Sabrina Webber, a 45-year-old real estate agent who lives in the neighborhood, said the first rescuers to arrive had to use the "jaws of life" to pry open a wire fence along rail line to get to the train. Johnnie Ford, an emergency room doctor, said a 14-year-old girl suffered two broken legs in the accident. The crash was blamed on an engineer on the commuter rail sending text messages on a cell phone.
The authority also moved forward with a pilot program that will test safety systems featuring motion sensors, thermal image cameras and other high-tech devices. Transit officials have said lowering train speeds would increase platform overcrowding and make stations more dangerous. Riders also fall to the tracks, unwisely descend to pick up dropped property or even drunkenly walk into the sides of trains on platforms. Washington police and the FBI also had investigators at the scene to help search the wreckage for any overlooked injured or dead passengers and evidence. A 20-year-old male patient "looked like he had been tumbled around quite a bit, bumps and bruises from head to toe," Ford said. That was a day of disaster in the capital -- shortly before the subway crash, an Air Florida plane slammed into the 14th Street Bridge immediately after takeoff in a severe snowstorm from Washington National Airport across the Potomac River.
