A light-rail train and a vehicle collided at the intersection of Howard and Lexington streets in Baltimore on Tuesday, a Maryland Transit Administration spokesman said.

A car turned into the path of a train around 3:56 p.m., said MTA spokesman Terry Owens. He said one light rail rider claimed injury but refused treatment when medics arrived. The driver of the vehicle was not injured, he said.

Service was delayed for about a half-hour until the medic arrived, Owens said.

The driver of the vehicle is believed to be at fault, he said, but added that the crash was still under investigation.
