Second Caltrain fatality in two days

 

For the second time in two days, a person has been struck and killed by a train in Burlingame.

Caltrain's southbound Baby Bullet train No. 362 hit a pedestrian at about 4:30 p.m. Thursday near Bellevue Avenue, Caltrain spokeswoman Christine Dunn said.

On Wednesday, a man was struck at Peninsula Avenue at about 12:20 p.m., about half a mile from where the person was hit Thursday. It appears Wednesday's death was a suicide, Ms. Dunn said.

Thursday's death marks the ninth person to be killed on Caltrain right-of-way this year. There were 11 fatalities on Caltrain tracks last year.
