Final Update: Metro Blue and Expo Line track has been cleared of incident vehicle. At this time, trains are resuming regular evening service. As a heads up, Blue Line trains run every 30 minutes between Willowbrook and Downtown Long Beach tonight after 8:30 p.m. due to needed maintenance. For more information, visit Metro’s Service Advisories page.
Metro Blue and Expo Lines are currently experiencing delays of up to 20 minutes due to contact with a vehicle at the intersection of Flower and 18th Streets.
Preliminary reports suggest the incident car made an illegal left turn directly into a Culver City-bound Expo Line train. On-scene personnel have indicated this incident will take an extended period to clear.
Blue Line trains are sharing one track between San Pedro and Pico Station, while Expo Line trains share one track between 23rd Street and Pico Station. Due to rail congestion, some 7th/Metro-bound trains are turning back at Washington on the Blue Line and 23rd Street on the Expo Line. Please follow station announcements.

We thank you for your patience as we work to restore regular evening service as fast as possible.
