At least one person was injured when a Metro train derailed after colliding with a car this morning.

Around 7:30 a.m., a Metro Blue Line train struck a car on the tracks in Willowbrook near at 119th Street and Willowbrook Avenue, reports the L.A. Times. The collision caused the train to leave the tracks, but didn't overturn. The Times reports that the driver of the vehicle suffered injuries, but the extent of the injuries is unknown and they were transported to a nearby hospital, according to City News Service.

Metro suspended service between the Willowbrook-Rosa Parks and Compton stations, and is currently offering bus shuttles to replace train service.
