SAN LORENZO (CBS SF) — A boy who was fatally struck by an Amtrak train in San Lorenzo on Thursday evening has been identified as 15-year-old Austin Price of Hayward, according to the Alameda County coroner’s bureau.

Price was struck on the tracks north of the Hayward Amtrak station at about 6:40 p.m., Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari said.

The victim was hit by Train 544 traveling from San Jose to Sacramento, Magliari said.

The 133 passengers and five crewmembers aboard the train were not injured. The collision caused delays of about two hours for Capitol Corridor Amtrak trains.

The tracks in the area are owned by Union Pacific Railroad.
