SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — One person was struck by a Caltrain and died in San Francisco on Saturday morning, according to a Caltrain official.
Just before 9 a.m. on Saturday morning, the #221 train heading northbound collided with a person on the track of Tunnel 3 in San Francisco. Caltrain says the person was trespassing on the tracks when the collision occurred.
Emergency crews responded to the scene and the tracks were on hold going in both directions. An update from Caltrain reads that trains are single tracking through the area. This is the tenth person killed in a Caltrain incident since the start of 2022.
