A big rig crashed onto the Metro Gold Line tracks in Pasadena Thursday morning and disrupted service between the Allen and Sierra Madre Villa stations.
The crash occurred at 1:55 a.m., but caused no apparent damage to the track’s overhead lines, but an investigation was underway to determine if any other portion of the rail line in the area was damaged, according to Metro spokesman Brian Haas.
The semi was traveling westbound on the Foothill (210) Freeway when, for unknown reasons, it swerved and crashed through the center divider and blocked the tracks, according to a California Highway Patrol incident log.
The carpool and Nos. 1, 2 and 3 lanes are blocked until further notice, CHP Officer Patrick Kimball said.
It was unclear whether anyone was hurt.
Metro customers will use a bus bridge between the Allen and Sierra Madre Villa stations until the tracks are reopened, Haas said.
Metro is running on a Sunday/Holiday scheduled Thursday because of the Thanksgiving Holiday.
