A pickup truck was struck Friday morning by a light rail train travelling near Bradshaw Road, and has caused some delays for commuters.

A Sacramento Regional Transit spokeswoman said the accident happened at approximately 7:45 a.m. It appeared that the truck ran a red light in front of the train and was struck.

There were no injuries in the incident, the spokeswoman said. Regional Transit bused train commuters from the Mather Field/Mills station to the Watt/Manlove station, according to RT’s Twitter account.

The Regional Transit spokeswoman said the train was running again at about 8:30 a.m., but said that travelers should expect delays as service resumes again.

California Highway Patrol said that the crash Friday caused road closures on northbound lanes on Bradshaw Road near Business Park Drive and Gore Road.
