Just to update you on the story we told you about on Sunday, the NTSB gave a briefing on Monday regarding the derailed DC Metro train that caused the agency to pull 60% of the trains from service, finding that the train had actually “derailed at least three times that same day and was not pulled out of service until the lat derailment.”

GULP:

“This could have been catastrophic”:

Apparently the train somehow righted itself after the first derailments:

And the NTSB doesn’t think the train operator even knew it happened:

Details here:

The NTSB went on to say this is a known problem that’s been getting worse:

But Metro did not notify the NTSB of the issue:

And now the city’s transportation infrastructure is crippled:

So, when will they be back? LOL. Nobody knows:
