NJ Transit Light Rail Train Hits Crashed Car on Tracks

Service was stopped shortly before 6:30 a.m., NJ Transit said, but resumed two hours later

An NJ Transit light rail train hit a vehicle that had previously crashed on the tracks in Trenton Sunday morning, the transit agency said. Service was temporarily suspended.

NJ Transit told NBC10 a southbound River Line train hit the unoccupied vehicle near the Route 29 bridge in Trenton around 6:20 a.m.

Service was then halted between Trenton and Bordentown, NJ Transit said on their Twitter page.

The vehicle was overturned on the tracks due to a previous car crash not involving the rail line, the agency said.

The light rail train had about 40 passengers on board at the time and an operator. None of them were injured, NJ Transit said.

Service resumed around 8:30 a.m. Passengers may see up to 30-minute delays in both directions between Waterfront Entertainment Center and Trenton stations, NJ Transit said.
