Caltrain hits vehicle in San Mateo

<p>Crews in San Mateo were making emergency repairs to the tracks Monday evening where a Caltrain struck an unoccupied vehicle,
a transit agency spokeswoman said.

At about 6:20 p.m., southbound train No. 280 struck the vehicle on the tracks at Bellevue Avenue, according to Caltrain spokeswoman Tasha
Bartholomew. The driver managed to escape the vehicle before the crash and there was no report of injuries.

The tracks were temporarily closed in both directions, but trains have since been allowed to single-track through the area.

Bartholomew said welders remained on scene at about 10:30 p.m. making emergency repairs.

Southbound trains experienced delays of up to two hours and northbound trains experienced delays of up to 50 minutes.
