Light rail train service from Folsom stations to Sunrise stopped after vehicle accident

Light rail trains will not be running east of Sunrise Boulevard Tuesday morning, due to a vehicle accident Monday, Sacramento Regional Transit District reports.

Devra Selenis, spokeswoman for Regional Transit, said the accident at Natoma Street and Folsom Boulevard caused extensive damage to a light rail power station in the area.

“The light rail will be down in the area for a few days,” Selinis said.

A special shuttle will transport passengers between Historic Folsom to the Sunrise station. Passengers have the option of driving to the Sunrise station to park in the park-pay-and-ride lot, Selinis added.

The light rail stations between Downtown and Sunrise Boulevard are not affected. Regional Transit alerts can be checked at https://m.sacrt.com/taalerts.aspx
