Car gets stuck on Expo Line tracks after crashing through fence in Exposition Park

A car is seen stuck on the Metro Expo Line train tracks in Exposition Park on Monday, May 23, 2016.

A car rammed through a fence and became stuck on the Metro Expo Line tracks in Exposition Park, temporarily disrupting train service early Monday morning.

The incident occurred near the Expo/Western station, along Exposition Boulevard just west of Western Avenue around 5:30 a.m.

No trains were coming through the area at the time of the crash, and no injuries were reported.

One person was seen handcuffed and placed inside a law enforcement patrol vehicle.

Metro train service was disrupted between the Expo/Western and Expo/Crenshaw stations. Metro said buses shuttled commuters during the brief closure.

Service was delayed for about 15-20 minutes, but normal service resumed around 7:30 a.m., Metro said.

The Expo Line's newly extension between Culver City and Santa Monica was not directly impacted.

That stretch of light rail track opened Friday, connecting the beach city to downtown Los Angeles and Metro lines stretching as far inland as suburban Azusa.
