Three people were hospitalized Wednesday after their vehicle was struck by a Metro Expo Line Train in Santa Monica, according to the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department.
Shortly after midnight, officials received a call of a sport utility vehicle that collided with the Expo Line train near the intersection of Colorado Avenue and Lincoln Boulevard, according to Sgt. Frederico of the Santa Monica Police Department.
The vehicle’s occupants were rescued and taken to a nearby hospital. At least one train passenger was evaluated for unknown injuries at the scene.
None of the injuries were considered life-threatening.
Police are investigating the possibility that the vehicle may have been stalled on the tracks. Details on what led up to the crash are still being investigated.
Lincoln Boulevard and Colorado Avenue were shut down for investigation. The line, connecting downtown Los Angeles with Santa Monica, reopened early Wednesday.
