Light-Rail Train Strikes Car On Tracks In New Jersey; 4 Hurt


Authorities say a light-rail train in southern New Jersey struck a car on the tracks, leaving four people with non-life threatening injuries.

New Jersey Transit spokesman Jim Smith said the RiverLine train traveling southbound struck the car in Riverton Thursday morning around 10:15.

He says two people in the car and one person on the train were taken to area hospitals. Another injured person on the train did not need to go to a hospital.

Fire officials removed the roof of the car to get to the injured driver and passenger.

Service was suspended between Palmyra and Cinnaminson and buses were being used instead on the train line that runs between Camden and Trenton.
