Major Road Closures Surrounding Shady Grove Station

The District transportation department is reporting closures on major roads surrounding the Metro station where two trains collided this evening.

New Hampshire Avenue, North Capitol Street and Eastern Avenue and Nicholson Street are closed in both directions; South Dakota Avenue northbound also is shut down.

Metro continues to encourage commuters to avoid the Red Line tonight, and is reporting heavy traffic on the Green Line.

I certainly hope the families of the dead and wounded sue Metro for millions...

It's Fort Totten, not Shady Grove (as in the current headline). Now you know why many people think WaPo does a lousy job with local news.

Is this the level of QC the Post does after letting another 100 workers go???? The crash and road closures are not at the Shady Grove Station - They are between Fort Totten and Takoma Park.

I hate to be picky about a non-picky correction, but it's the Takoma station, not Takoma Park. The station is in DC where the neighborhood is called Takoma. Takoma Park is the nearby city in Maryland.
