A Light Rail Transit vehicle collided with a passenger car this morning, halting service in both directions on the Red Line in Castle Shannon.

The inbound LRV collided with the car at about 11:25 a.m. at a crossing on Cooke Lane, near the Arlington stop, Port Authority spokesman Jim Ritchie said. The car was pinned between the trolley and a curb, briefly trapping its two occupants.

They were later identified as William J. Rush, 81, and Mary M. Rush, 78, of Dormont. Ms. Rush is better known locally as Molly Rush, a longtime civil rights and peace activist. She was taken to St. Clair Hospital and released after a short stay.

Rail service resumed shortly after noon. No one aboard the rail vehicle was hurt.
