A Metrolink train traveling through Santa Fe Springs, Calif., early Friday morning slammed into a class C motorhome that had stalled on the tracks. The RV immediately caught on fire. The flames charred a rail car on a freight locomotive on a parallel track and destroyed the RV.
The commuter train braked before the impact, but could not stop in time. Four people were seen jumping from the RV before it was hit. The female driver escaped on foot and is wanted by police and could face hit and run charges. Nobody was seriously hurt on the passenger train.
