Caltrain fatality near San Mateo slows trains

Giants fans planning to take the train Thursday evening should find alternative transportation, officials say

Giants fans attending tonight's game (June 9) should not take Caltrain due to a fatality near San Mateo, rail officials said. There will be significant delays.

Southbound train No. 362 struck and killed a person on the tracks near the San Mateo station at approximately 4:30 p.m., spokeswoman Christine Dunn said.

Caltrain service between the Millbrae station and the Hillsdale station has been suspended. Efforts are underway to establish a bus bridge between the two stations. Ambassadors will be at the stations to direct passengers.

Train #362 was an express Baby Bullet train that left San Francisco at 4:09 p.m. It stopped at the Millbrae station at 4:25 p.m. It was not scheduled to stop at Burlingame or San Mateo.

No identification for the person is available at this time. Following a complete investigation, the San Mateo County Coroner will make the official determination of the cause of death.

The accident is the second fatality in the past two days.

On Wednesday at 12:23 p.m. northbound Caltrain No. 143 struck and killed an adult male on the right of way at Peninsula Avenue in Burlingame. No vehicles were involved.
