      Train Collides Into Car At Peninsula Gate
      No Injuries Reported

      SAN BRUNO -- A car trying to drive around a lowered Caltrain gate
      in San Bruno was struck by an oncoming train Tuesday afternoon,
      although no one was seriously injured in the crash, Caltrain
      spokesman Johan Weinberg said.

      Around 2:30 p.m., a car waiting where San Mateo Avenue meets train
      tracks in San Bruno attempted to drive around a lowered gate that
      indicated a train was coming, Weinberg said.

      The car crossed the tracks, and as the train came through, it
      collided with the vehicle, according to Weinberg.

      The collision caused little damage to the train, according to
      Weinberg.

      "People in the car were pretty shaken up," he said.

      One track in the area was closed and the train involved in the crash
      is out of service while Caltrain conducts an investigation, but
      Caltrain service will only be minimally affected, Weinberg said.
