WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — Commuters on Metro’s Red Line had an eventful commute Tuesday morning as the doors on one of the cars opened while the train was in motion.

The doors opened between the Van Ness and Tenleytown Stations around 9 a.m. according to Metro officials.

Nobody was hurt in the incident, but the train was evacuated at Tenleytown.

The rail car in question was from the 1000 series, which is the oldest used by Metro.

A Metro official told All-News 99.1 WNEW that there was no indication that the problem was specific to that type of car.

No injuries were reported in the incident.
