Man Killed by Train at Pershing Square Station
By City News Service
A 35-year-old man was struck and killed Tuesday by a Metro Red Line train at the Pershing Square station in downtown Los Angeles.
The man was struck by an eastbound train just before 3 p.m., according to Erik Scott of the Los Angeles Fire Department.
The collision caused major disruptions on the Red and Purple lines, which share the tracks at the station, Metro’s Steve Hymon said.
Trains were rerouted to bypass the Pershing Square station, and passengers were told to consider using a DASH bus or the Metrolink Bunker Hill Shuttle.
It was unclear how the man wound up on the tracks.Print This Post
