PHOENIX - A light rail train collided with a vehicle in central Phoenix just before 6 p.m. on Tuesday evening in central Phoenix.

Valley Metro tells 3TV a driver reportedly turned in front of the train and hit the light rail car on Central and Highland, just north of Campbell.

Investigators say that it was a white car pulled in front of the train.

One passenger who was aboard says the train skidded about 25 feet before it came to a complete stop.

"It was a jolt after it stopped," says Rafael Mendoza. "It came to a really abrupt stop and I just pulled the release button and got out of the train to see if anything had happened, and there was an accident."

There is no report of any serious injuries due to the crash.
