The VC Line 102 train, which was headed southbound to Los Angeles, hit the car around 5:45 a.m. near 5th Street and Rice Avenue in Oxnard, according to the Ventura County Fire Department.
“For some reason there was a tractor trailer on the tracks there at Rice Avenue and Train 102 collided with it,” said Scott Johnson of Metrolink.
The truck caught fire and four train cars derailed.
At least 30 people have been injured and taken to Ventura County Medical Center or St. John’s Hospital in Oxnard, Metrolink said. It was unclear if there were any fatalities.
