Metro leaders worry about Red Line crash report

By Washington Post editors

Metro faces what may be its worst ever financial situation, and board members envision a point in early 2010 when they will have to go to the public with proposals to raise fares and cut service. Today, several of them expressed frustration that Metro still doesn't know what federal investigators think caused the fatal June 22 crash on the Red Line.

What they do know is that the National Transportation Safety Board will eventually issue recommendations designed to correct whatever problems caused the crash. But it's very unlikely that those recommendations will be issued in time to become part of the capital budget proposed for the fiscal year starting in July.
