NEW YORK — A train was stuck for a short time in the tunnel between Brooklyn and Manhattan near Wall Street, and caused massive delays on several lines Wednesday evening.
FDNY officials responded to the scene at the Wall Street station, where the train was stopped due to mechanical problems. An empty “rescue train” picked up the passengers from the stalled train.
No injuries were reported.
MTA officials later identified a piece of metal on the tracks as the cause of the issue in the Clark Street tunnel. They are investigating how it got there.
Many passengers heard there was an explosion in the tunnel, but the MTA has confirmed that there was no explosion and officials are investigating a track problem.
Several lines are affected by the stalled train. Check MTA.com for updates.
