A Brightline train collided with a truck sitting on the train tracks in Wilton Manors Thursday afternoon.

No major injuries were reported, but a woman with pre-existing conditions who was on the train asked to be taken to the hospital as a precaution, according to a Brightline representative.

The train was traveling through the city when a truck carrying a car was on the train tracks while the barriers were down, the representative added.

Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Stephen Gollan told Local 10 that the truck was transporting a Tesla.

“He was stopped on the tracks with one vehicle loaded on the trailer,” he said. “The gates went down and he was unable to get the truck off of the track.”

Passengers on the Brightline were stuck on the tracks for two hours before being allowed to continue on their journey.

The incident comes just a month after a collision in Oakland Park, also involving a Brightline train. The driver was on the tracks when the barriers were down but was able to get out of the vehicle before the train crashed into it.

In February, there were three crashes involving a Brightline train in just four days, according to the Palm Beach Post, and more than 50 people have died in collisions with the company’s trains.
