OXNARD, Calif. — A Metrolink commuter train struck a truck on tracks in the Southern California city of Oxnard on Tuesday morning, injuring more than 30 people.

Emergency personnel treated people on tarps on a road adjacent to the tracks, video from KABC showed.

There are more than 30 patients being treated, said Sergio Martinez, a battalion chief for the Oxnard Fire Department. He didn’t have information on their conditions. Oxnard police say no one was killed.

The train hit a truck just before 5:45 a.m. PST, the California Highway Patrol said online. Three cars derailed and toppled over, and at least one vehicle was said to be “fully engulfed,” the patrol said.

First responders could be seen pushing injured people in stretchers. Some people are lying on the ground and firefighters have hoses on cars that are off the track. Emergency vehicles dot a long stretch of road.
