ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) - Metro says two cars separated from the rest of a train at a station in Maryland.

Metro says no one was hurt in the incident involving an eight-car train at the Twinbrook Station in Rockville on Monday and safety systems kicked in to stop the cars.

Most of the 40 passengers were able to get off the train at the platform, but Metro says two riders in the lead cars had to walk along the tracks back to the station.

The train was made up of Metro’s newest railcars. Metro says the cause of the separation remains under investigation.
