The only Metro board member present at that hearing, which came in response to last June's Red Line crash, was Vice Chairman Catherine Hudgins, though Interim General Manager Richard Sarles was there, too.

At the hearing, NTSB members told of how aged, faulty equipment left trains invisible for days on a stretch of track near the Fort Totten Station, making the crash an accident waiting to happen.
