A Metro train struck another train on the same Red Line track at the height of the evening rush hour yesterday, killing at least six and injuring at least 70 in the deadliest accident in Metrorail’s 33-year-history. One of the dead was the operator of the train that rear-ended another stopped in front of it just outside the Fort Totten station in Northeast Washington, Metro officials said.
