Man Trespassing On Tracks Struck And Killed By Amtrak Train In Martinez

MARTINEZ (CBS SF) — A man who died after being hit by a train near the Martinez Marina Sunday was trespassing on the train tracks when hit by the train, an Amtrak spokeswoman said.

“It was a trespasser, someone on the tracks who should not have been there,” said Christina Leeds, a spokeswoman for Amtrak.

Train 733, a Capitol Corridor train, was on its way to Oakland from Sacramento when the strike happened around 11:45 a.m., Leeds said.

The investigation concluded and trains were back on the move around 1 p.m., Leeds said.

The marina is located at 7 Court Street.

Additional information was not immediately available.

    …Man Trespassing On Tracks Struck And Killed By Amtrak Train In Martinez…The body isn’t even cold and you railroad bought media go with the jury tampering “””trespassing””” instead of murdered by pathetic safety standards.

    Trespassing would be climbing the eight foot railroad fence—bagging the railroad security cameras, hiding from the railroad lookout towers, and outrunning the two railroad cops in the state. There has to be deterrents not some railroad bobble head going yap-yap-yap when the railroads pull his strings with the media parrots right behind.

    1. since railroads are private property the idiot was indeed trespassing. I guess this concept is hard for the liberal tools on the left to comprehend. put your entitlement away loser

    Jon Brawn is a screen name for Robert T. Pines of Sullivan, Missouri. He hates the railroad industry and regularly trolls the web for anything that he can comment on. Fortunately, very few people take this clown’s nonsense comments seriously.
    This individual died as a result of being struck by an Amtrak train while trespassing on private railroad property – something that he personally chose to do. The railroad industry isn’t perfect, but they are not at fault in this incident.
