KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - One of Kansas City’s new streetcars has been damaged in a wreck with a car.

The Kansas City Star reports (https://j.mp/1TMPqZX ) the wreck occurred Thursday evening when the streetcar and a car collided at a downtown intersection. No injuries were reported. About 10 people were in the streetcar at the time.

One of the streetcar’s doors was partly caved in. The Streetcar Authority says the streetcar was returned to its station and streetcar service resumed later Thursday evening.

Accounts differ on whether the streetcar or the passenger vehicle had a green light to proceed through the intersection.

Kansas City’s streetcars started taking passengers earlier this month along its 2.2 mile starter line. The streetcar line cost $102 million, including $37.3 million in federal funding.
