A Metro Blue Line train crashed into an abandoned car after it was left there by a suicidal man who changed his mind.Authorities said the crash happened just before midnight Friday on the tracks along Long Beach Avenue near East 41st Street, between the Vernon Avenue and Washington Boulevard stations.

32-year-old Jose Zepeda Reyes turned himself into Los Angeles Police about an hour after the crash.

Reyes told officers he changed his mind about killing himself and left the car on the tracks.

No one was injured in the collision. The train sustained only minor damage.

Reyes was arrested and is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail.
