The grandmother and her grandchild were taken to Broward Health Medical Center for minor injuries. The woman broke her collarbone, according to WSVN 7News. The airbags deployed and the rear of the vehicle was completely crushed, photos show.

It was the first day that the private train service had resumed since suspending operations in March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, and Brightline’s president and other company officials were onboard, WSVN 7News reported.

The train service, which was launched in 2017, runs every hour between Miami and West Palm Beach.
