Metro rider hospitalized after possible drug overdose at Greensboro station

Medics and Metro transit police responded to the Greensboro station shortly before 11 p.m. last night (Tuesday) after two passengers were reportedly found passed out on a train.

One rider was found “in serious condition from a possible drug overdose,” Metro spokesperson Sherri Ly said. The other rider was later said to be “conscious and alert.”

Both passengers were taken to the hospital.

Metro limited trains to one track between the Tysons and Spring Hill stations during the emergency response.
