The northbound train headed to Altamonte Springs struck the back of a utility trailer in Longwood at State Road 434 near Ronald Reagan Boulevard just before 6 p.m., according to police.

Northbound trains are being rerouted to the southbound tracks to get around the investigation, according to the Florida Department of Transportation.
