The "obstacle" was a Range Rover jammed on the rails, photographed by several users.

"I had just arrived at Brussels Midi and I saw something really weird: a car on the rails inside the subway station," one person wrote.

The driver "refused for a long time to get out of his car," according to Belgian newspaper Le Soir. He was eventually taken to a police station.

Which obviously got some laughs from the police officers.

The spokesman for the transit authority told the Soir that there were no injuries.

Repair services cleared the Range Rover by Monday night, and traffic resumed as normal by Tuesday morning.

This is not the first time a car ventured into the metro of the Belgian capital. The evening of Dec. 31, youths drove a vehicle on the stairs of a Brussels metro station.
