Firefighters had to cut a car in half Friday morning after it was struck by a light rail train and pinned against a pole in Five Points.
The person who was inside the car was removed and is “doing well,” according to the Denver Fire Department. One person aboard the D Line train was mildly injured.
The incident happened at Park Avenue and Welton Street.
The car had to be cut in half to be removed. A tow truck will have to remove the pieces before the train can move.
There is no D Line service northbound or southbound between 18th and Stout streets and 30th and Downing streets, and as of 10:30 a.m., there was no estimated time for reopening. RTD says bus shuttles will cover the gaps.
You can also expect minor delays on the F and H lines.
