Passenger records train going through 8 stops with door open

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey Transit train has traveled through at least eight stops with a door open and has been pulled out of service. A passenger captured video of it.

Rider Jeffrey Spitery shared cellphone video with WNBC-TV showing people moving around the train Tuesday night while the wind from the open door whips their hair. Spitery says the train stopped at Newark Penn Station while a conductor searched for an open door. The train then continued. Spitery says as the train approached his stop in Metuchen he found a door “wide open.” New Jersey Transit says a train should not move while a door is open. It says it’s investigating. There’s no indication anyone was injured while the train door was open.
