'The Pole Went Through the Door!': Six People Injured After Truck Crashes Into Phoenix Light Rail

Six people with minor injuries were taken to hospital after a truck crashed into a light-rail train in Phoenix, Arizona, on March 14, according to reports.

Carl Garbelotti filmed a video, which shows the derailed Phoenix Valley Metro, as he exited the train safely, after the incident.

“Oh my god, the pole went through the door? What just happened? I fell off my seat!” Garbelotti can be heard saying in the video.

Garbelotti told Storyful that the carriage he was in “rocked side to side” and he was thrown from his seat to the floor after the train was struck by a vehicle. He used the emergency handle to open the door and exit the metro without injuries. Credit: Carl Garbelotti via Storyful
