Car crashes into Los Angeles commuter train

Friday morning rush hour will go down in history as the day of collision of sport utility vehicle into a Los Angeles commuter train.

The Metro Gold Line train and vehicle collided shortly after 7 a.m. northeast of Los Angeles.

Four train passengers, the train's operator and the SUV's driver were hurt in the crash but the injuries were not life-threatening, said David Sotero, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

The train caught fire and received "significant damage" before it was doused, said a Los Angeles fire spokesman, Ron Myers.

It was the second crash on the city's commuter train line in two weeks.

The Gold Line train carries passengers between Los Angeles' Chinatown and suburbs east of the city.
