Officials at the Sacramento Regional Transit (SRT) office is investigating how a bicyclist versus light rail train crash occurred.  The two collided along the Folsom Boulevard route at the Zinfandel Station.  Amazingly, the woman bicycle rider was taken to the hospital without suffering life-threatening injuries as a result of this collision.

According to Alane Masui of SRT, the red lights were flashing and the guard arm was in the down position, when the bicyclist rode her bike directly into the path of the train.
