Metro trains were single-tracking between the Rhode Island and New York avenue stations Wednesday afternoon due to a woman struck by a train at Rhode Island Avenue.

The Rhode Island Avenue station was closed temporarily -- trains passed through without stopping -- and shuttle bus service was requested, but the station has since reopened , Metro said.

Red Line riders were warned to expect delays, but regular service had resumed by 4:35 p.m.

The woman was taken to an area hospital. A preliminary police investigation determined she was on the tracks intentionally.
