(CNS)––A male was struck and killed by a Riverside-bound Metrolink train in Boyle Heights Monday, authorities said.
The deceased’s age was not immediately available, said Officer Jane Kim of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relations Section.
The victim was struck around 4:25 p.m. near the Fourth Street bridge over the Los Angeles River by Train 404 on the Riverside Line, which operates between Union Station and downtown Riverside, Metrolink’s Jeff Lustgarten said.
He was pronounced dead at the scene, Lustgarten said.
None of the the 399 passengers aboard the train was injured, according to Lustgarten, who said they were transferred to the next Riverside-bound train, which pulled alongside Train 404 to allow the stranded riders to board.Print This Post
