Services resumed at the Foggy Bottom Metro after a man in his 50s was struck by a train shortly after 2 p.m. today.

The unidentified man was pronounced dead upon arrival at GW Hospital, Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority spokesman Dan Stessel said. The man appeared to have stepped into the tracks intentionally, Stessel said.

The blue and orange line trains, which bypassed the station during about 30 minutes of investigation, are running on one track.
