A Brightline train has collided with a pickup truck on 10th Avenue North in Lake Worth.

According the Palm Beach Sheriff's Office, the driver had abandoned the truck before the crash.

A viewer, Emi Mendoza, was driving by the train tracks and sent in a picture that shows the scene after the impact.

A woman aboard the train told CBS12 News, “I don’t know what it was but we heard the conductor slam on the horn and slam on brakes and now we are just stopped. They told us over the speaker we were involved in a “collision” but no word yet with what. I can see outside my window and I see people leaving their apartment for work and nobody is freaking out.”

The condition of the driver of the pick-up truck is still unknown. CBS12 News will continue to follow this story.
