A pedestrian was hit and killed by a passing train March 17 around 10 p.m.
The victim’s body was found at 6th and Orange Streets underneath a halted train car.
The train was stopped on the tracks with hazard lights flashing leaving West 3rd through West 9th Streets closed until early morning.
Officers at the scene redirected pedestrians, dressed in St. Patricks day apparel, walking from downtown bars. They were told crossing at West Sacramento Avenue would be there quickest alternative route. Most pedestrians chose to disregard the officer’s wishes by climbing in between the train cars in order to cross the tracks. There were no firetrucks or ambulances on scene.
Officers stated that they were unsure of the causing factors of the train-pedestrian collision.
