Authorities Investigate Train Fatality In Montebello

By City News Service

An investigation was under way this week into the death of a 16-year-old boy who was struck by a train in Montebello.

Officers were dispatched around 8:20 p.m. Monday to the railroad tracks in the area of Maple and Mines avenues to investigate a report of a dead male on the tracks, said Lt. Michael Bergman of the Montebello Police Department.

“Our preliminary investigation revealed that the subject was struck by a train. We don’t know what train,” Bergman said.

Someone on another train spotted the body and reported it to authorities, he said.

The victim was identified as Tikkri Osario of Montebello, said Lt. Joe Bale of the Los Angeles County coroner’s office. The fatality appeared to have been an accident and not a suicide, he said.

Union Pacific Railroad police were handling the investigation, Bergman said.

    Union Pacific Railroad has no business handling a death train accident. That would be a conflict of interest. The toothless, lapdog FRA is useless.

    Montebello P.D., L.A. County Coroner, L.A. County Sheriffs. Those are the appropriate chain of command. Who the hell does Union Pacific Railroad think they are?

    This is one more reason why Montebello needs the Montebello Trench. With a Montebello Trench rail, vehicle and pedestrian traffic would all be separated. No horn blowing, no traffic congestion, no pedestrian deaths.
