Caltrain strikes empty vehicle in Palo Alto
A northbound train struck an unoccupied vehicle Sunday night in Palo Alto, Caltrain officials said.
The incident occurred at around 9:30 p.m. at the East Meadow Drive crossing, near Alma Street, according to Caltrain officials.
More than 220 passengers were onboard the train involved in the incident. No one was injured as a result of the crash, Caltrain officials said.
Passengers were able to board a relief train.
