A car stuck on the tracks and a car-train crash disrupted light-rail service in St. Paul on Metro Transit’s Green Line late Tuesday night.

Metro Transit said the car had gotten stuck on the tracks for a time at the Capitol/Rice Station. The car vs. train crash was at the Lexington Station.

The line links downtown Minneapolis, the University of Minnesota and downtown St. Paul.

About 12:15 a.m. Wednesday, the agency said the cars had been removed from the tracks. Service was being delayed by an average of 30 minutes, but Metro Transit hoped to get back on schedule.
