A collision between a Caltrain train and a pickup truck halted all train service in south Palo Alto for about an hour late Monday afternoon.
The driver of the vehicle was transported by an ambulance to a local hospital, though early reports indicate that there were no life-threatening injuries.
The collision occurred shortly after 6 p.m. near East Meadow Drive when northbound train 381 hit the truck at the grade crossing. Crossing gates were also damaged in the collision, according to Caltrain, though the agency announced at 7:25 p.m. that they are expected to be in working order shortly.
Trains stopped in both directions, causing delays for passengers, but the scene had been cleared for single-track travel by around 6:50 p.m. and all trains had been cleared to move at 7:30 p.m.
