Two train cars left on track in Owings Mills

Baltimore commuters were literally left behind this morning as an MTA Metro SubwayLink train left four cars behind on the tracks.

According to commuters on the 7:11 a.m. Owings Mills train, passengers heard a loud hiss at the Old Court stop. They say it took about five minutes before anyone realized the rest of the train left without them.

One passenger posted a video on Facebook of the incident. In it, you can see an open track in the 795 median until a few minutes later when the train finally comes back to re-attach the cars.

Maryland Transit Administration sent ABC2 News the following statement:

Shortly after 7 a.m., an operator stopped a Metro train outside of Owings Mills Station to investigate a warning notice. After restarting the train, four cars became detached from the six-car train for about five minutes. There was never a safety issue for our passengers.
