BOYNTON BEACH - A man was injured Thursday afternoon when his car struck a Virgin train on Southeast 23rd Street, Boynton Beach police said.

The spokesman did not have any other details about the incident or about the effect it would have on scheduling for the high-speed rail service formerly known as Brightline


It’s the second crash involving a car and a Virgin train in two days in Palm Beach County. A driver was uninjured in a wreck Wednesday in Lantana, authorities said.
