At least 10 people were transported to local hospitals after a Metrolink train collided with a box truck in Sun Valley on Tuesday, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.
The crash occurred about 10:39 a.m. in the 8200 block of San Fernando Road, according to an LAFD alert. The train had six cars and a total of 187 passengers aboard.
AV Line 212 was headed to Los Angeles when it struck a vehicle on the tracks, according to Metrolink.
Sky5 aerial video showed the train was stopped on the tracks, with multiple emergency vehicles — including LAFD trucks and ambulances, as well as Los Angeles Police Department patrol cars — parked on the surrounding tracks.
A portion of San Fernando Road was shut down by the Department of Transportation as fire responders worked to assess the number of patients, LAFD said.
A triage area was set up near the train, and multiple people — most with apparently minor injuries — were being treated by emergency personnel, the aerial footage showed.
None of those taken to the hospital had injuries that were considered life-threatening, according to LAFD.
It was not immediately clear how the crash would impact Metrolink service in the area.
