Patch has received several emails from concerned readers who say they saw what they believed to be a dead person covered with a sheet at the intersection of National Boulevard and Hayden Avenue near the Culver City Expo Station on Wednesday morning.
However, the entire scene was simply part of a Metro drill, held in conjunction with the Culver City police and fire departments ahead of the opening of the Expo line to Culver City.
The drill which began around 9:30 a.m. and continued for a couple of hours simulated a "train vs. pedestrian accident," reports Metro.
