The accident, which involved a Los Angeles-bound train operated by Metrolink, occurred in Santa Fe Springs, about 13 miles (21 km) southeast of the city's downtown.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department and the Whittier Police Department, which is handling the investigation, were not immediately available for comment.

The crash sparked a fire that engulfed the vehicle and the front of the train but it was quickly extinguished, local media reported. Video posted on social media showed the charred remains of what appeared to be a recreational vehicle on the tracks, abutting the blackened front end of the train.
