Caltrain hits another pedestrian
Update 3 p.m.: Caltrain has cleared the scene and all trains are back on track, so to speak. By the way, September is Railroad Safety Month.

Update 2 p.m.: Caltrain confirmed it was an adult male who was killed.

Original story 1:21 p.m.:
About 20 minutes ago, a southbound Caltrain car hit a pedestrian on the tracks between the border of San Carlos and Belmont.

We don't have much information at this time, but according, to Christine Dunn, spokeswoman for Caltrain, at about 12:55 p.m., the #146 train hit the person on the tracks north of the San Carlos station. Approximately 125 people are onboard the train, however, nobody was injured.

There is no vehicle or pedestrian crossing at the site.

The northbound $147 train, which has 300 on board, has stopped at the Redwood City train station. It is currently running 25 minutes late. At this time, three trains have been impacted. It typically takes about 90 minutes for regular train service to resume.

SamTrans will provide a bus bridge between Redwood City, San Carlos, and Belmont stations. SamTrans, which serves all train stations in San Mateo County, will honor all Caltrain tickets.
