The northbound Lynx Blue Line has returned to service Thursday morning, after being shut down for about 90 minutes due to a collision with a truck near the intersection of South Boulevard in the Hebron Street.

No injuries were reported as of 6:45 a.m. Southbound rail traffic was not impacted, and all lanes were open on South Boulevard and Hebron Street.

The accident was reported about 6:15 a.m. Thursday. The first railway car of the trail sustained damage on one side during the collision, which also ripped the bumper off a truck. Charlotte transit officials were on site at 6:45 a.m. checking to see if the railway car was safe enough to continue traveling. It resumed service about 7:15 am.
