A minivan crossing the Main Street MetroRail tracks this afternoon was hit by a train.

Quyen Lu was driving his sister, Phuong Lu, northbound on Main Street today about 2:35 p.m. when he turned left onto westbound McGowan.

The Toyota minivan they were in was struck broadside by a southbound MetroRail train.

Kristine Mguyen, riding the train for the first time, saw the collision. She stayed at the scene to translate English to Vietnamese for the Lus.

Phuong Lu was bruised and shaken but able to walk around. There were no serious injuries and rail service was only temporarily interrupted.

Ha! I just checked on the death train counter and it was showing 10 to reflect the latest one. Now we're at 11 only a few hours later!
