Accident involving a T rail car injures one

Saturday, June 15, 2013, 6:00 p.m.
 

The driver of a sport utility vehicle sustained minor injuries Saturday when the vehicle 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 a Light Rail vehicle hit it. The Jeep flipped on its roof. The driver suffered minor neck and back injuries, Ritchie said.

No one inside the Light Rail vehicle was injured. A passenger who had a heart problem was taken to a local hospital.
