Wiehle Reston-East Metro/Credit: Mike HeffnerThere are major delays on the Silver Line this morning after a teenage girl apparently jumped in front of a Metro train at DC’s Eastern Market station.

Orange, Blue and Silver line trains are single-tracking between Eastern Market and Federal Center SW due what Metro is calling “a medical emergency” at the station.

As of 8:45 a.m., Silver Line trains operating are operating between Wiehle-Reston East and Ballston only and not entering the District.  Metro advises using Orange/Blue Lines from other stations.
