A car and AMTRACK train collision at Cassidy Street in Oceanside has left at least one person injured, officials said.
The incident happened at approximately 8:12 a.m. Monday when Oceanside Police and Oceanside Fire both responded to a car and train collision near the train tracks.
Sheriff’s deputies on the scene said one woman was inside the car when she parked her car off to the side of the crossing. As the gates started to close, the woman then drove up onto the tracks and parked there, deputies said.
The train conductor saw the woman ahead of time, deputies said, but not soon enough to stop all the way before hitting the car. When they collided, the train was going about 30 to 40 miles per hour, deputies said. Oceanside Police are asking people to avoid using Cassidy Street near the train tracks while they investigate.
An AMTRACK train out of San Diego has been delayed because of the incident.
