Eugene police say a female passenger told them she overheard a man talking about a bomb.
Police stopped the train and made everyone get off while a bomb squad searched for possible explosives. Passengers had to wait for several hours while police cleared the train.
“We’re here to pick up my grandma. Like I said, we’ve been here since noon. We’ve had to wait a while,” said Guadalupe Zuniga around 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, a Eugene resident.
Eugene police detained and questioned one person but later released that person.
Passengers were allowed back on the train at 4:00 p.m.
