Dozens of people are hurt after a commuter train derailed this morning in Southern California.  Metrolink spokesman Scott Johnson tells Fox News three of the train's cars left the tracks after crashing into a tractor trailer on the tracks in Oxnard.  

The truck quickly caught fire after being struck by the train, but the driver reportedly managed to escape unharmed, fled the scene and was arrested a short distance away.  Dozens of firefighters and paramedics remain on the scene treating victims in what they're calling a "multi-casualty" incident. 

A fire department official had said at least one person died in the crash, but Metrolink isn't confirming that report.  The National Transportation Safety Board says it's aware of the situation and "currently gathering information."
