LOS ANGELES -- A man and a woman were not seriously hurt Sunday when their sport utility vehicle and a Metro Blue Line train collided near downtown Los Angeles, authorities said.

The crash happened at about 12:15 p.m. at 1234 E. Washington, near Central Avenue, Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey said.

The passenger in the SUV, a woman of unknown age, had minor complains of pain, but didn't need medical treatment, Humphrey said.

At the area where the crash happened, the Blue Line tracks run down the center of Washington Boulevard, a busy commercial street.

The car was pushed off of the tracks by the collision.

The cause of the crash is now under investigation.
