A person was fatally struck by a train in Palo Alto Thursday night, a Caltrain spokeswoman said.
The collision was reported at 10:10 p.m. on the southbound tracks south of Charleston Road, Dunn said.
Train service was stopped in both directions as emergency crews responded. Dunn said 220 passengers were aboard the train, No. 192, when the collision occurred.
The fatal collision occurred about half an hour after a separate incident on East Meadow Drive in which a car got stuck on the Caltrain tracks. Palo Alto police responded to the scene and a tow truck was called in to remove the car, Dunn said.
More information will be posted as soon as it becomes available.
