Caltrain delayed after early-morning fatality on tracks
November 21, 2012, 05:00 AM

Caltrain service was delayed yesterday morning after a train fatally struck a man on the tracks at the Charleston Avenue crossing in Palo Alto at 5:35 a.m., Caltrain spokeswoman Christine Dunn said.

A preliminary investigation indicated that the incident was a suicide, Dunn said.

No injuries were reported among the 55 passengers aboard the train who were later transferred to another train at East Meadow Drive.

Trains were single-tracked through Palo Alto at around 10 mph until 8:40 a.m., causing system-wide delays of up to an hour and a half during the morning commute, Dunn said.

The fatality is the 11th on the Caltrain right of way so far in 2012, five of which have been determined to be suicides, Dunn said.

There were 16 Caltrain-related fatalities in 2011.
