SAN LEANDRO, Calif. — A man was fatally struck by an Amtrak train Monday in San Leandro, officials said.
Train No. 528 was traveling from San Jose to Sacramento when it hit the man on the tracks about 10:30 a.m. near Davis Street and Orchard Avenue, according to Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari. Several crew members and 54 passengers were on board at the time and delayed several hours as they waited for the next train to pick them up.
The man was one of three people hit by trains around the Bay Area on Monday morning and the second to die. A man was killed when he was hit by a Caltrain in Burlingame, and another man sustained critical injuries and had to be extracted from under a BART train by firefighters in San Francisco.
