The driver of a sport utility vehicle sustained minor injuries Saturday when it rolled over after a collision with a Light Rail transit vehicle in Dormont, said Jim Ritchie, a spokesman for Port Authority of Allegheny County.

The accident, which happened at about 5:10 p.m. on the Red Line near the Hillsdale stop, interrupted service for about an hour, Ritchie said.

A man driving a Jeep Cherokee drove onto the tracks and was hit by the Light Rail ail vehicle. The Jeep flipped on its roof. The driver sustained minor neck and back injuries, Ritchie said.

No one inside the Light Rail vehicle was injured but a passenger with a heart problem was taken to a local hospital.
