Metro says it had "near miss"

By Washington Post editors

A Metro work crew experienced a close call on Sept. 20 on the Yellow and Blue Lines near Braddock Road, according to Metro spokesman Reggie Woodruff.

A track crew was conducting circuit testing near Braddock Road and "there was a communications issue that caused a train to be routed onto a track that the workers were not aware of," Woodruff said.

Metro characterized the incident as a "near miss," although "the workers were never in harm's way," he said.
