Metro remembers Red Line victims
About 300 people gathered near Fort Totten Metro station on Tuesday morning and observed a moment of silence for the nine people killed and dozens injured in the tragic Red Line crash that happened one year ago.
"Today we reflect on the most tragic day in the history of Metro. We express our shared sorrow," said Jim Graham, a member of Metro's board of directors, who presided over the event.Graham was board chairman when the accident occurred.
Representatives of the families said that the Metro accident could have been avoided, and urged Metro officials to take steps to make sure that such loss of life never happens on the system again.
