NTSB asks transit agencies to remove signals

July 27, 2010 (CHICAGO)

Nine people died last June when two trains collided at a station in Washington D.C.

The National Transportation Safety Board says an electronic signal should have triggered the approaching Metro train to slow down and stop. But it failed.

A spokesperson said that CTA was looking into the report but did not have a comment at this time.

Judy Pardonnet with Metra said the transit agency does not have equipment like that involved in the Washington crash.
