Man struck by Caltrain in fifth death this year

May 4, 2010, 1:00 a.m.

A southbound Caltrain struck and killed a man on the south platform of the San Antonio station in Mountain View at 5:08 p.m. on Monday, a rail spokesperson said. Passengers on the train, No. 264, were transported to another train shortly after the collision.

Caltrain service was delayed for up to an hour afterward, according to Caltrain spokeswoman Christine Dunn. SamTrans, VTA and BART accepted passengers with Caltrain tickets on Monday evening.

Monday’s fatality is the fifth death on the Caltrain right-of-way this year.
