Caltrain service restarts after fatality

 

Caltrain service is slowly getting back to normal after the tracks were shut down earlier this afternoon when a person was struck and killed by a train in Burlingame.

Northbound train No. 143 hit the person at Peninsula Avenue at 12:23 p.m., Caltrain spokeswoman Christine Dunn said.

The train left San Jose at 11:10 a.m. and was making all local stops. There were about 900 passengers on board, and they were transferred to another northbound train, Dunn said.

The tracks were initially shut down in both directions between the San Mateo and Millbrae stations, and SamTrans operated shuttle buses along that stretch.

The tracks have since reopened, and trains are traveling through the area at reduced speeds.

The person who was killed has not yet been identified.

The death is the eighth fatality on Caltrain right-of-way this year, Dunn said. Last year, there were 11 deaths on the tracks.
