The man killed by a train in Menlo Park Sunday (Sept. 12) was Stephen Ebaugh, 53, of Menlo Park, the San Mateo County Coroner's Office has announced.
Ebaugh was a member of the Palo Alto Elks Club and served as chaplain in 2007 and president in 2009, according to the organization.
Southbound train number 438 struck Ebaugh on the Caltrain tracks at Glenwood Avenue, north of the Menlo Park station, at about 5:14 p.m., Caltrain spokeswoman Tasha Bartholomew said.
Ebaugh was on the tracks for unknown reasons and Caltrain's official position is that he was trespassing, she added.
No further information is available yet about the accident. Bartholomew said this is the seventh fatality for Caltrain this year.
