Metro Holds Ceremony To Mark 1st Anniversary Of Fatal Crash

Family and friends of those killed in Metrorail’s deadliest crash gathered to remember their loved ones on the first anniversary of the tragedy.

Metro marked the day with a ceremony Tuesday at the Fort Totten station and the dedication of a plaque bearing the names of the nine people killed.

Several speakers praised the efforts of train operator Janice McMillan, who is credited with saving many lives in her last moments by slamming on the train’s brakes.

McMillan’s 20-year-old son, Jordan, said the last year has been his hardest, but that he was glad to see so many people come together for the ceremony.
