Victim killed by southbound Caltrain

Feb. 26, 2010, 1:01 a.m.

At about 5:25 p.m. on Thursday, Southbound Caltrain 328 struck and killed a person at the San Antonio Station in Mountain View. The victim was not immediately identified.

According to Christine Dunn, a spokesperson for Caltrain, officials reopened the northbound side of the tracks in the area later Thursday night. Both northbound and southbound would use the single track until officials could open up the other track.

Dunn said it “usually takes about an hour and a half” for normal service to be restored after incidents like the one Thursday.

Also Thursday, another Caltrain struck an abandoned minivan at 5:15 a.m. in Sunnyvale. No injuries were reported, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. It was unclear why the minivan was on the tracks.
