Intersection cleared after light rail derailment at Camden Yards

A light rail train briefly derailed near Oriole Park at Camden Yards Wednesday afternoon, temporarily limiting vehicle and foot traffic from Conway and Howard streets to the east side of the B&O Warehouse.

A photo posted on Twitter showed the train jumped the track near the entrance to access road that leads to stadium parking lots at the intersection of Conway and Howard. Cars remained upright. A Maryland Transit Administration spokesperson said 10 people were aboard at the time of the derailment, but nobody was injured.

The train was back on the track by 4:30 p.m., and trains were able to pass the scene on the opposite track during the incident.

The Orioles host the Yankees at 7:05 p.m. Wednesday. Light rail trains to the ballpark were in service.

The incident occurred around 4 p.m. and was cleared by 5 p.m., according to the Orioles. The club asked early arrivals to the ballpark to use Hamburg, Lee or Ostend streets to access parking lots. By 5 p.m., though, the Orioles said normal traffic patterns were restored.
