LOS ANGELES (AP) - Metro officials say service has resumed on the newly expanded Expo Line after a car crashed through a fence and ended up blocking tracks in both directions near downtown Los Angeles.

Officials said some residual delays were expected after the car was removed from the tracks shortly after 7 a.m. Monday near Exposition Park.

Buses took commuters between the Western and Crenshaw stations during the brief closure.

There is no immediate word of injuries or arrests. The cause of the single-vehicle crash is under investigation.

Service was not interrupted on the Expo Line’s newly opened stretch between Culver City and Santa Monica. That leg of light rail track opened Friday, connecting the beach city to downtown Los Angeles and Metro lines stretching as far inland as suburban Azusa.
