'Confused' French woman tries to cross Metro tracks (VIDEO)
WASHINGTON - Riders at Metro Center were surprised to find a reportedly confused woman standing on the median between two tracks on Wednesday night, according to eyewitnesses.
The woman, dressed in black and carrying a red bag, appeared to try to cross over both sets of Red Line tracks between 9:15 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Wednesday night before stopping on the center barrier. She appeared "lost, almost confused," says Jen Voss, who tweeted a picture of the incident.
Metro reports the 37-year-old woman is French, does not speak English and was trying to cross from the Shady Grove side to the Glenmont side of the tracks.
"If you can believe it, it seemed like an honest mistake," Voss tells WTOP in an email.
