    The investigation into a commuter rail train that hit a car in Revere, Massachusetts late Wednesday night continues and police say the driver turned himself in.

    Revere Police said the two people inside the car took off on foot after it was hit by an outbound Rockport commuter line train on Oak Island Street around 10:30 p.m.

    MBTA Transit Police said they have identified the driver of the car that crossed the tracks and was hit by the train. They said he was a 25-year-old from Lynn who turned himself in Wednesday night, but are not releasing his name at this time.

    He was reportedly fleeing from an earlier hit-and-run crash when his vehicle was hit by the train, according to the Boston Globe.

    An MBTA spokesperson said no one on board the train was injured.

    There are no train stops in the area of the accident.

    MBTA's transit police department is leading the investigating into the crash. 

    Service along the Rockport line was not affected Thursday morning.
