A MetroLink train on the Washington Park-East St. Louis line collided with a car at 37th Street and St. Clair Avenue in Washington Park, Illinois, early this morning. No one on the train was injured, but the driver of the car was taken to the hospital according to reports.

MetroLink's Rider Alerts system has announced 30 minute delays for stations on the St. Louis side, including the Convention Center, Eighth and Pine streets, Arch-Laclede's Landing and the Central West End. Plan accordingly if you're taking the train today.
