The female driver of a car that collided with a Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority light-rail vehicle in San Jose Monday morning was taken to a hospital, a VTA spokeswoman said.

The collision was first reported at 8:51 a.m., when a car turned in front of a LRV and collided with it on North Capitol Avenue between Penitencia Creek and Mabury roads, according to VTA spokeswoman Stacey Hendler Ross.

The car's driver was taken to a hospital and Hendler Ross did not know the extent of her injuries.

The scene of the collision has since been cleared and VTA service has resumed back to normal.

No other injuries were reported, Hendler Ross said.

About 20 passengers who were on the LRV at the time of the collision were transferred to another vehicle on the opposite side of the tracks, according to Hendler Ross.
