A pedestrian was fatally struck by a northbound Caltrain on Friday morning, March 18, at around 10:36 a.m., according to a statement from the transit agency.
The San Mateo County Coroner's Office identified the victim as 70-year-old Kathleen Terry of Menlo Park.
No further information could be provided, the coroner's office said.
The incident occurred on the tracks between Watkins and Encinal avenues in Menlo Park. Caltrain later released an update stating that the person was killed.
About 68 passengers were on board train #113 and there were no reported injuries onboard, according to Caltrain spokesperson Dan Lieberman. Tracks in both directions were closed following the incident, with the southbound tracks reopened at reduced speeds about an hour later, around 11:30 a.m. Both tracks fully reopened at regular speeds shortly before 1:30 p.m.
No further details on the pedestrian were released.
According to the transit agency, this is Caltrain's fourth fatality in 2022. They include accidents in Mountain View, San Mateo and San Bruno, Lieberman said.
As of noon, the northbound track was still closed and all trains were being single-tracked through the southbound platform of the Menlo Park station, with delays expected.
Menlo Park Police Department advises drivers to avoid Encinal Avenue and use Glenwood Avenue or Ravenswood Avenue as a detour.
