This is some of the article from wmata.

"The Dunn Loring-Merrifield Metrorail station on the Orange Line remains temporarily closed after a man was struck by an inbound six-car train at about 1:15 p.m. today (June 16). "

Your title should read: another person commit suicide on metro orange line.

Did one of the metro trains commit suicide by ranning itself into a wall?

The title is correct as is. A similar expression that might sound familiar to you is "death by hanging." Just another wonderful peculiarity of the English language.

You don't even care that someone died if it rains in on your praise DC and show off your hatred of everyone else? You are a very hateful person, do you know that?

This is not a good way to commit suicide because of the harm of other people.

1.) It freaks out the locomotive driver.

2.) The people who see you do this will be shocked and some, especially kids might be emotionally traumatized.

3.) It will delay thousands of passengers to their jobs in the office or their morning score of whatever narcotic they are seeking.

Do you sit around at your computer all day just waiting for something bad to happen in DC so you can post it? Sure seems like it since the only things you post are bad things. They also have nothing to do with DC. A person committed suicide. This happens everywhere. It's just life. People die. I had someone die in front of me last shift at work. Should I post about that as well? What about the guy that got stabbed at work? It's just a weird thing to post about and my goal isn't to look stupid and try my hardest to make DC look bad.

I'm so sad for this person and their surviving family members. As a survivor of a suicidal family member, I know what they are going through. And by train? Their self loathing must have been beyond. Thankfully, nobody on the train was harmed, at least from what I understand. That would have been trauma on top of trauma.
