The Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District reported a collision between a Regional Transit light-rail train and a tow truck early Wednesday in Rancho Cordova.
The crash happened at Folsom Boulevard and Mercantile Drive just after 5:30 a.m., according to Michelle Eidam, a Metro Fire spokeswoman.
Devra Selenis, a Regional Transit spokeswoman, said the tow truck was eastbound on Folsom Boulevard when it lost control. The truck hit a telephone pole and then swerved, hitting the lead car of the inbound train.
“When they lost control, they hit the front of the train where the doors are,” Selenis said.
