A northbound train struck a man in his 50s on the Caltrain tracks at the Oak Grove Avenue crossing in Menlo Park at about 10:17 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 24, according to a Caltrain spokesman.

Emergency personnel took the man to a hospital for treatment, Caltrain spokesman Haroon Malek said in an email statement.

As of Feb. 28, he was still in critical condition, according to Caltrain spokesman Dan Lieberman.
