Collision involving car, train disrupts Metro Rail service Sunday morning

No injuries were reported following a Sunday morning collision involving a car and Metro Rail train at Main and Court streets.

Michael Martineck, spokesman for the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority, said the incident occurred about 9:30 a.m. when a driver ran a red light and his vehicle crashed into the passing train. Reports did not specify whether the train was headed north or south, but its operator reported no serious damage.

After initial inspection at the scene, the train returned to the NFTA Yard and Shops at the foot of Main Street for further examination, Martineck said.

Service was delayed for about 20 minutes, he added, and the driver was ticketed for running a red light.
