lr-carSACRAMENTO-

A light rail train collided with a car Monday afternoon along Del Paso Boulevard, sending one person to the hospital.

The train was heading west toward the Interstate 80/Watt Avenue stop when it struck the car.

It’s unclear how the car ended up in the path of the train in the first place, but the train hit the front driver’s side of the car and sent the driver to the hospital.

Train passengers were taken off the train and put on buses to the next stop.

Traffic was returned to normal around 4:30 p.m., roughly an hour after the crash, after the scene was cleared.
