At least 10 people have reportedly been hurt after a train, carrying nearly 200 passengers, and a truck collided in Los Angeles.

Officials said the Metrolink train struck the vehicle on the tracks in Sun Valley this morning. 

Those injured have been taken to hospitals with injuries that are not life threatening, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD). 

Metrolink said the six carriage train was en route to LA when it happened. 

Aerial video showed the train stopped on the tracks with emergency vehicles parked on the surrounding tracks. 

LAFD said a section of San Fernando Road was closed by the Department of Transportation as fire crews assisted passengers.
