Debris from a landslide in Niles Canyon hit an Altamont Corridor Express (ACE) commuter train Tuesday morning, halting the train, according to reporting by NBC News Bay Area. No injuries have been reported, and the train did not derail.

The westbound train with 220 passengers aboard remained on the tracks, but was forced to stop, after it was struck by mud and trees, according to fire officials and an ACE spokesperson.

Fire officials were seen inspecting the tracks with train employees following the delay. ACE’s spokesperson said the train was still in working order and would start moving once given clearance.

Landslides due to recent storms have shut down parts of Highway 84 and the Niles Canyon corridor over the past few weeks, the NBC Bay Area report noted.
