SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— A train car’s door was ripped-off a San Francisco Muni vehicle as it passed through San Francisco’s Castro Station early Thursday afternoon.

Transit officials told KCBS the inbound train experienced a door problem at the Forest Hill Station around 12:20 p.m. When it arrived at the platform at Castro Station, the door struck the platform and was pulled off its hinges. No one was hurt and the train was removed from service.

John Haley, the director of transit operations for Muni, said it is possible the door didn’t close correctly at the previous station. He said they are confident, however, that is not a broader problem with the train doors and called it an isolated incident.
