A man was struck and killed by a Metro train along the Orange Line between the East Falls Church and Ballston Metro stops early Sunday morning, according to NBC Washington.
Metro officials said they do not believe the victim was a Metro employee because he was not wearing a Metro uniform. His name and age have not been released.
Metro is continuing its investigation as to why the man was on the tracks.
Eight people aboard the train were transferred to another train to finish their trips following the incident, which occurred around 2 a.m.
