Woman’s Body Found On San Jose Caltrain Tracks

SAN JOSE (CBS SF) – A female body was found on the southbound Caltrain tracks between the San Jose Diridon and Tamien stations Monday morning, a Caltrain spokeswoman said.

The body was found around 9:50 a.m., spokeswoman Christine Dunn said.

The person may have been hit by southbound train No. 228, but the circumstances of the death remain under investigation, she said.

A southbound train that was scheduled to arrive at the Tamien station at 10:12 a.m. was allowed to pass through because there were no passengers on board, she said.

However, the next scheduled southbound train—train No. 236, which was scheduled to arrive at the Tamien station at 11:07 a.m.—is being held at the San Jose Diridon station, she said.

No northbound trains were scheduled between Diridon and Tamien stations until about 2:30 p.m. Monday.

The medical examiner’s office is responding to the scene.
