BURLINGAME (CBS SF) — A person was struck and killed by a Caltrain in Burlingame Tuesday afternoon, according to the transit agency.

Caltrain officials reported on Twitter at 2:32 p.m. about the collision involving northbound Train No. 151 heading toward San Francisco.

The collision occurred near Howard Avenue, just south of the agency’s Burlingame station, involving a person trespassing on the tracks.

Bus shuttles took passengers around the scene until the southbound tracks reopened, allowing trains to single-track through the area as of about 3:15 p.m.

  1. Another suicide, perhaps the only guaranteed escape from meth/heroin/pot honey oil addiction. When the drug dealer’s demons take over your brain, and you can’t get away. The only remaining solution is to END IT ALL. Sad, but sometimes necessary.
    People need to have a legal assisted suicide option…available to EVERYONE, not just those terminally ill. Otherwise, they will resort to jumping in front of trains.

  2. I hope this careless fool did not mess up anyone’s day by delaying the train. On the flip side, it is joyous news that one less turd is in the Bay Area.
