R.T. Train Collides With Sedan
A downtown bound Sacramento Regional Transit train collided with a sedan at the Stockton Blvd. crossing this afternoon.
The green sedan, carrying only the driver, somehow ended up in the path of the on-coming train when it was struck.
No injuries were sustained by the single occupant of the sedan or by any light-rail passengers on board.
Officer Schumacher with the Sacramento Police Department confirmed the lack of injury in the incident saying only that the vehicle was on the wrong side of the crossing arm.
Richard Williams was working across the busy street and heard the accident but said that he did not see it happen.
“It looks like the arms came down before we heard the crash,” said Williams.
The vehicle sustained mostly front end damage, the train appeared to continue its normal route after inspection.
