A car wedged underneath an NJ Transit train platform disrupted Wednesday's morning commute for riders on the railroad's busiest line.
A photo posted to Twitter showed half of it completely underneath the platform, the other half stretching across one line of tracks as a train full of passengers sat waiting.
Halwa Raj, who tweeted the photo, said officers were trying to figure out the best way to get passengers aboard using the low level platform.
NJ Transit said Mohammed Khan, 65, of Edison, apparently stepped on his car's gas pedal instead of the brake, causing the car to lurch forward and go under the platform.
He was not injured, but received two summonses, for careless driving and interference with transportation.
