On November 17, 2022, at approximately 5:50 p.m., Rohnert Park Department of Public Safety (RPDPS) responded to a vehicle collision involving three vehicles that were traveling eastbound on Rohnert Park Expressway near the SMART train tracks. As a result of the collision, a Toyota Prius came to rest with its front bumper slightly intersecting the train tracks. Moments later, the SMART train, which was traveling southbound on the tracks toward the Rohnert Park Expressway SMART Station at approximately 15-20 mph, entered the intersection of the tracks and Rohnert Park Expressway and struck the front bumper of the unoccupied Toyota Prius. The train then came to a complete stop on the tracks, blocking both directions of travel on Rohnert Park Expressway for approximately 90 minutes.

No injuries were reported in the three-vehicle collision or the SMART train collision.

Anyone with information regarding the collisions is asked to contact the Rohnert Park Department of Public Safety at (707) 584-2600 and refer to Case #22-4575.
