WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- Metro spokesperson Philip Stewart says that a train that was disabled on the Red Line earlier on Tuesday will undergo diagnostic testing.

According to Stewart, the train "operating between Van Ness and Tenleytown had an uncommanded door opening involving two cars" shortly before 9 a.m. but no one was injured.  

Stewart says that car maintenance personnel met the train at Tenleytown and passengers were offloaded. 

The train has been moved to Shady Grove for diagnostic testing, says Stewart.

The problem happened shortly after a third rail problem on the Red Line near Medical Center. Red Line trains were single tracking between Grosvenor and Medical Center stations.
