Gold Line Train Hits Car in Boyle Heights


A Metro Gold Line train hit a car Tuesday in the Boyle Heights area, resulting in an injury, authorities said.

The crash occurred about 6:40 a.m. in the 1100 block of East First Street, said Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

A person in the car was injured and was taken to a hospital in unknown condition, Humphrey said. The circumstances of the crash were under investigation.

Trains were being delayed by about 15-20 minutes while crews worked to clear the scene, said Dave Sotero of Metro. Because of the collision, trains had to use a single track between the Little Tokyo and the Pico Aliso stations, Sotero said.
