The car turned in front of the train on Flower Street just north of 18th Street, where an onramp leads onto the 10 Freeway, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Sgt. Ed Luevano said.

Four people in the car were injured, including some with open wounds, and were taken to California Hospital Medical Center, he added.

Five train passengers complained of pain and were also taken to the hospital, he said.

The accident, which occurred about 2:50 p.m., is being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department, Luevano said.
