Van and light-rail train collide in South Seattle; no injuries

A van and a light-rail train collided north of Othello Station this afternoon, but the accident was minor and no one was injured, said Sound Transit spokeswoman Kimberly Reason.

Reason had few details about the accident at Martin Luther King Jr. Way South and South Brandon St.  After the accident, Sound Transit used just one track for about 30-45 minutes.

The train involved in the incident was headed north, Reason said, and afterward, was taken out of service for inspection.
