Car collides with Los Angeles' Expo rail train, 6 injured

Six people have been injured after the sedan they were riding in collided with a light rail train conducting a test run through downtown Los Angeles.

A spokesman for the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority says the collision occurred at a street intersection shortly after 4 p.m. Saturday.

Spokesman Jose Ubaldo says he has no immediate information on the extent of the injuries.

Footage from TV news helicopters shows the driver side of the vehicle crushed against the front of an Expo line train as firefighters used the Jaws of Life to pull the driver out of the car.

The cause of the crash is under investigation. There were no passengers on the train.

The Expo line connecting downtown to Culver City is set to open later this year.
