A Metrolink train has been involved in a fiery crash with an RV in the tracks in Santa Fe Springs on Friday morning.

The RV was abandoned on the tracks after stalling there. People inside the RV dashed out as the train approached.

Police confirm four people were seen running from the stalled RV on train tracks as the Metrolink train roared their direction.

There were no serious injuries but now police are trying to figure out who owned the RV.

All the passengers on the train have been evacuated with Metrolink telling KNX none of them are injured.

Dennis Tyrrell, who said he was a passenger on the train on his Twitter page, took a video of the scene above.

The train was the OC Line 681, "the OC Line 681 to Los Angeles is stopped in between Buena Park and Norwalk due to striking a vehicle on the tracks," according to Metrolink on Twitter.

Around 7:14 a.m. Friday morning, Metrolink wrote on Twitter: "All trains on the OC and 91PVL line are stopped because the tracks are closed between Buena Park and Norwalk, expect extensive delays of at least 2 hours."
