    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.

    The River Line light rail train runs north to south from the state capital in Trenton, N.J. to Camden, N.J. stopping at communities along the Delaware River.
