ORLANDO, Fla. - A SunRail train was involved in a crash with another vehicle on Friday afternoon, according to Orlando Fire Department.

The Florida Department of Transportation said it appeared the train was heading to Sand Lake Road when it clipped the back of an SUV that was hanging over the tracks at West Michigan Street in the area of South Orange Avenue just before 4:30 p.m.

Fire officials said the two people inside of the other vehicle were not injured.

OFD said there were riders on the train, but it was not clear how many. FDOT said the train had an extra car for the afternoon rush.

No riders on the train were injured.

Local 6 news helicopter Sky 6 flew over the crash scene as the train was stopped on the tracks and traffic was backed up in the area as the Michigan Street railroad track was blocked off.

FDOT said the northbound train was experiencing delays.

Friday's crash marks the second crash involving a SunRail train. Last month, a woman's car stalled on the tracks and the train slammed into her car just after she ran out. No one was injured.
