Dozens of passengers have been injured after a Southern California commuter train collided with a truck. Three cars on the Metrolink train derailed and overturned after the collision just before 6am local time. Fire and rescue crews converged on the crash site in Ventura County, about 65 miles (104km) northwest of Los Angeles. At least 30 people were being treated, according to local media reports.
The severity of their injuries was not immediately known. Oxnard police Sergeant Denise Shadinger said the struck vehicle was engulfed in flames when first responders arrived. The train was bound for Los Angeles from Ventura County, according to Metrolink’s website.
