A train collided with a van Wednesday afternoon just southwest of uptown Charlotte.

At least one person was injured in the collision near West Summit Avenue and Clarkson Street, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police. The extent of the injuries was not immediately know.

West Summit Avenue was closed to traffic around 5:30 p.m. It wasn’t clear when the road would reopen.

Several news outlets showed video of the remnants of a yellow delivery truck with boxes strewn across the roadway and railroad tracks.

Police were still investigating Wednesday afternoon.
