Man fatally struck by Caltrain commuter train in San Jose

SAN JOSE (BCN) -- A Caltrain commuter train struck and killed a man on the tracks in San Jose Thursday morning, agency officials said.

Northbound Caltrain No. 217 struck the person on the train tracks near Emado Avenue, located near Coyote Creek Park, Caltrain spokeswoman Christine Dunn said.

The preliminary investigation indicates the man killed himself, Dunn said. No injuries were reported among the 160 passengers aboard the train.

Trains were stopped in the area and there were delays system-wide. During the delays, Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority buses will honor Caltrain tickets between San Jose and Gilroy, Dunn said.
