A woman was flown to a trauma center after being hit by a New Jersey Transit River Line train in Burlington County this morning.

A northbound light rail train struck the unidentified woman at West Broad Street and Commerce Square Boulevard just south of the Burlington-South station around 9:15 a.m. Friday, NJ Transit tells NBC10.com.

There were 38 passengers on the train at the time.

That intersection is where the ligh- rail line crosses a road.

The woman survived but information on injuries and her condition were not immediately available, officials said.

A medivac helicopter was called to the scene to transport the victim to Fuld Medical Center.

NJ Transit officials say River Line service was suspended between the Florence and Beverly/Edgewater Park stations for about an hour as a result of the crash.
