One person was killed and two were injured in a collision near Levi's Stadium late Sunday afternoon, Santa Clara police said.
A woman was pronounced dead at the scene after the car she was driving was broadsided by a pickup truck at the intersection of Tasman Drive and Lick Mill Boulevard about 5:40 p.m., according to police spokesman Lt. Dan Moreno.
The woman who died was not identified. Two occupants in the pickup were taken to a hospital and expected to survive, Moreno said.
The crash ended up on VTA light-rail tracks, and trains were unable to pass. The tracks between the Great America and Baypointe stations were temporarily shut down as a safety precaution, and the VTA provided a bus bridge for passengers. It was not known when that section of the track would reopen.
The cause of the crash is unknown and under investigation.
