Description

When nine people died and 80 were injured on Washington's Metro June 22, the general manager described the event as "a freak occurrence." However, the article revealed that the Metro's automatic "fail-safe" system had failed repeatedly before the collision, but past failures barely escaped catastrophic consequences.
