    One person was killed and three were injured Saturday in a three-vehicle crash in Palmdale in which one vehicle rolled down an embankment onto railroad tracks, authorities said.

    The crash was reported at 2:44 p.m. at Pearblossom Highway and Small Road, the California Highway Patrol said.

    One victim was dead at the scene, Los Angeles County Fire Department Capt. Ron Singleton said. A 60-year-old man and a 60-year-old woman were in "moderate condition," and taken to a trauma center, he said.

    A 19-year-old man was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.

    A sedan rolled down the embankment onto the tracks reportedly used by Metrolink, the CHP said. The other vehicles involved were a red Toyota Tacoma pickup truck and a white Chevrolet Suburban, the CHP said.

    As a result of the crash, Metrolink's Antelope Valley train 265 from Los Angeles to Lancaster was held at Vincent Grade/Acton while the car was removed from the tracks, Metrolink spokesman Scott Johnson said. The car was removed about 4:15 p.m. and the train resumed service after a 25-minute delay, Johnson said.
