June 25, 2009 — Like most people on Washington’s Red Line Metro train Monday, June 22, LTJG Victoria Zalewski expected her trip downtown to be like any other weekday commute — until she heard the crash and felt the jolt.

Zalewski, a NOAA Corps officer serving with the National Marine Fisheries Service, was riding in the train that was struck from behind by another Metro train, which ended up on top of the other.
