DC Metro crash raises subway safety concerns

The exact cause of the DC Metro crash is still unknown. Part of the cause could be faulty control circuits and authorities are asking, are some of the cars just too old to be on the tracks? CNN's Jeanne Meserve reports.

    I do appologize CNN! I was having what is known as "A bad hair day" yesterday! Again, I was just a bit testy. You guys and gals here on cnn do a really gr8 job in reporting the news! Keep up the gr8 work!

    People, we need to ban to fix the Trillions in damages to our country! If only this administration would start to put the HUMAN American people and thier survival above that of a minnow ...or a turtle, or a frog ...We may have been able to fix the problems and issues that we face now as an American People! But, I fear that this administration has no intentions of actually repairing our country and its many costly problems, and that they will (till the end of thier reign) care more for the little things that will not help to save our people at all! It will however help the minnows, the frogs, the pigs, and now even the turtles! They even put the monkeys (that were never even given to the zoo) before the best interest of the people of LA! As I have said, what we need is a team of good housewives in the office! If anyone can fix the problems, rally full public support to fix the actual problems, and find unique ways in which to inexpensively pay for it, my vote would be with them! The democrats are making a complete mess of absolutely everything! I fear that we may just see the losses of our freedoms, the losses of all of our main structures, and the total loss of our Constitution ...right in our lifetime! This administration needs to be voted out by the next election, and completeyly held at bay from accomplishing any more damage to us! We can not withstand any further damage being done to us, our country, and our financial foothold!!

    Why is it, cnn, that you do not put the peoples opinions on here, if they are full reality? We don't want the veiwers to know the thruth I guess. I am sorry People, I have tried to leave a comment for you about the subway problem, but they just refuse to add it! You are ALL just being misled! They probably won't add this comment either!

    What a joke! Subway concerns?? They were told! So was the govt.!! But we chose to go and give BILLIONS of dollars away to help fix other countrys! Maybe we should take OUR money and fix the trains, bridges, water pipes and sewage pipes coast to coast, all dams and levys (ready to break nationwide) roads, highways (NOT TO SAVE THE TURTLES) ...We need to fix these things or in the end, the turtle will have the only good highway left! And, we will get to pay for it! There will be alot of Americans die because we are not going to fix these problems! We may just be fixing them in the dark, as the electric grid is old and also in serious need of nationwide repair!! I can just hear them now ..."we didn't know". YES! THEY DO! They will do yet one more patch job on it now, because of this very accident. You will be made to think and believe that something was done, when it will not be! Who has the $$$$ for it now? This administration is giving it all away and losing our American companies in the process! Noone will be able to actually pay for these things in the end! What this president and his administration has done, is doing, and I fear WILL DO to our country ...is a total shame.

    I'm still in shock and sad ... I can't believe Michael is gone. I just want to say that my soars goes out to his family. I must give praise to MTV they have been playing Michael's video all day ( thank you) if it wasn't for Michael there wouldn't be MTV or BET. To the Jackson family you had the pleasure of raising growing up with a angel that was only meant to be on earth for a short time.
