Pedestrian Killed by Caltrain, Expect Commuting Delays

Posted By on Wed, May 15, 2013 at 8:11 AM


An unidentified pedestrian was hit and killed by a southbound Caltrain this morning.

According to Caltrain, the incident happened at about 5:20 a.m. when the #102 train struck a person who was on the tracks between Linden and Scott streets, a mile north of the San Bruno station.

The northbound train #313, which was scheduled to leave San Jose at 6:45 a.m., was canceled and other trains were stopped until about 7 a.m. However, as of now, trains are moving slowly, about 30 miles per hour, so expect delays through the morning.

Per the transit agency:

Caltrain apologizes to our riders for any inconvenience caused by this morning's tragic fatality. No matter what the circumstances, any fatality is regrettable. The cause of this incident is under investigation.

This is the eighth pedestrian fatality on the tracks this year. On Friday, a pedestrian was killed on the tracks in Burlingame.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
