Train collides with car in Pasadena; 2 injured

Two people were injured after a Metro A Line train collided with a car in Pasadena Thursday. 

It happened around 9:20 a.m. at Raymond Avenue and California Boulevard, authorities said. 

SkyFOX video showed the mangled car at the railroad crossing as multiple firefighters were seen working to free the driver from the car. She suffered moderate injuries, authorities said. 

Metro spokesperson Jose Ubaldo told City News Service the train operator was also taken to a hospital with unspecified injuries that were not considered to be life-threatening.

The tracks were closed in the area for the police investigation, so buses were used to carry passengers to the Del Amo, Fillmore and South Pasadena stations. Trains began running again in the area shortly after noon, and all tracks were fully reopened by 2:30 p.m.

Metro technicians were on scene evaluating possible damage to the train and other infrastructure.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
