A man has been hospitalized after crashing his truck at the Scaleybark light rail station in South Charlotte, according to the CMPD. The man has suffered injuries, however they are not life-threatening.

The accident report states that the accident occurred around 2:00 a.m. early Saturday morning, when the man somehow lost control of his vehicle and crashed it somewhere in the vicinity of the light rail. The impact caused the car to spin, ending up on the tracks of the light rail.  Fortunately for other drivers, his car was the only vehicle involved in the accident.

In an unfortunate turn of events, after the collision with the light rail gate, the driver had to be cut from the car and rushed to the hospital.  Police  were subsequently forced to shut down a section of the road in both directions for a few hours while CATS made repairs.
Accordingly the police currently believe that both speed and alcohol  played a role in the crash.  The driver is expected to survive.
