Metrorail death ruled accidental

By Ann Scott Tyson

The District medical examiner's office ruled as accidental the death of a man hit by a train and found on the Metrorail tracks at Farragut North Station on Jan. 15.

The man, Lou Stancari, 63, had last been seen by friends late the night before, and they said he did not appear depressed or suicidal. Stancari was an archivist for the Smithsonian and a set designer. He worked for theaters on evenings and weekends won a Helen Hayes Award in 1992 for his set design for Signature Theatre's "Sweeney Todd."

"The Metro Transit Police Department is conducting a thorough investigation," said Metro spokesman Steve Taubenkibel.
