FOLSOM– A crash involving six cars has blocked light rail tracks at Folsom Boulevard and Blue Ravine Road.

Traffic investigators say one driver had some sort of medical emergency and rear-ended stopped traffic on northbound Folsom Boulevard, pushing at least one car through the crossing arms and onto the tracks.

Four people were taken to the hospital for “light to moderate” injuries, police said.

Light rail service was shut down as crews worked to clear the tracks. Folsom Boulevard was to reopen around 8 a.m.
