DC Metro Train, originally uploaded by Isaac Gallery.

“D.C. Fire and EMS spokesman Alan Etter said one train was on top of the other train.

This is “developing into a mass casualty event,” Etter said. “We’re expecting a number of injuries. We’re not aware of any fatalities at this point.”

Hearing that it is a mass casualty event is very scary news. I hope to report more as info becomes available.
