    A car was struck by a Hudson-Bergen Light Rail train early Friday, causing massive delays for commuters throughout the morning.

    The car became wedged between the train, which derailed, and a utility pole.

    NJ Transit spokeswoman Penny Bassett Hackett says it appears the car ran a red light when it was struck on Sixth Street at 3 a.m.

    There were no passengers on the train.

    The driver of the car had to be extricated. Bassett Hackett says the driver sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

    Normal service resumed by 10 a.m., NJ Transit said.
