(Updated at 10:10 a.m.) A teenage girl sustained minor injuries after jumping in front of a train at the Eastern Market Metro station this morning, according to authorities.

D.C. Fire and EMS Department units arrived on the scene about 8:30 a.m., agency spokesman Oscar Mendez said. Paramedics brought the teen to a local hospital for treatment.

Trains only were operating on one track at the station while officials responded to the incident. But now both tracks are open.
