Safety inspectors nearly hit by train during Metro inspection

In The Washington Post's continuing investigative series on lapses in subway safety, the paper reported that independent safety inspectors — banned from Metro tracks until a Post exposé in November — returned to the rails in December to assess whether the transit agency was following rules meant to protect its own workers. During the inspection, the officials were almost hit by a train that was traveling at full speed towards them with no sign of slowing. According to a report from the committee responsible for safety oversight on the Metro, the inspectors "were forced to quickly scramble out of the way to avoid being struck."
