At Least 1 Dead, 9 Hurt in Metro Crash: Report

A Metro representative has just told ABC-7 television that one person died and at least one was injured in the collision near Fort Totten. CNN has also reported the death.

If you were on this train, or know someone who was, e-mail us.

Washington Post Editors: You guys were asleep at the switch, just like one of those Metro drivers! CNN was reporting this story at last 30 minutes before you had ANYTHING on your site. And then you finally post a story labeled "Commuter Alert," as if it's just a pesky delay on the trains! That's an insult to the person who died. And both stories have so little information.

Big story. Get on the ball, folks.

For the constant complainers, just go away and twitter yourselves or something. Seems like unless you have instant detailed information on any event, you throw a tantrum.

The Post is traditionally the last to report breaking news. Broadcast will always beat their pants off.

Screw off, Madeleine. Have you ever covered a breaking news story when the facts are still very much in question? Responsible newsgathering is about being right, not first.

Big ego. Get off your self-importance, jerk.

The Post's mobile site still doesn't mention it.
