At least six people are dead after a commuter rail crash in the nation's capital on Monday.

Two Metro commuter trains collided near the Maryland border at the start of the evening rush hour. Rescue crews cut train cars apart to get some victims out. At least 60 were taken from the trains and the numbers of injured will be more.

It's too early to know why the trains collided and the National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the crash.
