Train hits truck in LA County, 3 people injured

SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a commuter train carrying more than 200 passengers struck a semi that was stalled on the tracks in northern Los Angeles County, leaving three people with minor injuries.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's department says the crash involving a Metrolink train and the truck hauling automobiles occurred about 9:30 p.m. Saturday in Newhall near Santa Clarita.

Sheriff's spokesman Lt. Bill Weiss says the semi driver was able to get out of the truck before the crash.

The department says three of the train's 220 passengers had minor injuries and were treated at a hospital. No one else was hurt.

Weiss wasn't sure how fast the train was going, but says the truck was heavily damaged and spilled diesel fuel. The train did not derail but remained at the scene.

The rail line provided buses for the passengers to continue their journeys.
