A train clipped a car on the Caltrain tracks in San Bruno this evening, causing major delays for passengers throughout the area, Caltrain said.
According to the @caltrain Twitter account, a train traveling northbound struck a BMW that was on the tracks at San Mateo Avenue at about 6 p.m.
Upon investigation, however, the car couldn't immediately be found, @caltrain said.
Minutes later, @caltrain said that the car and the woman driving the vehicle were found at a nearby supermarket. The driver was transported to a hospital with minor injuries, Caltrain said.
Train service has been delayed up to 30 minutes until about 8 p.m. while the accident is under investigation, a Caltrain spokeswoman said.
"Although the cause of the accident is still under investigation, Caltrain reminds pedestrians and drivers to be cautious when crossing train tracks. Never go around lowered crossing gates," Caltrain spokeswoman Christine Dunn said. "The gate means wait."
