Green Line closes after collision between train, van

There is 'considerable' debris at the scene.

Service on the Green Line light rail briefly went down in St. Paul after a collision between a train and a van.

Metro Transit says there was a "considerable amount of debris to be removed" following the collision just after 11 a.m. at University Avenue and Eustis Street.

At 11:27 a.m., it said that its crews were working to clear the scene, and by 11:45 a.m. the scene had been cleared and service had resumed.

The crash had caused the brief stoppage of Green Line services between Raymond Avenue and Prospect Park.

At this stage, there is no information about any possible injuries.
