Dozens of people have been injured after a train derailed at a crossing in southern California earlier today.
So far there have been no casualties confirmed.
Three of the cars from the Metrolink train fell onto their sides, although the locomotive stood upright after crashing into a truck. Not much remained of the vehicle except some fiery wreckage and left over debris strewn across the intersection.
Reports of the crash came as early as 5:44 a.m. this morning PST. The train was departing Ventura County and heading towards Los Angeles at 79 miles per hour.
This is not the first train disaster for Metrolink as two previous crashes occurred in the past decade.
The National Transportation Safety Board will be conducting an investigation to determine if the rail mechanics were functioning properly.
