Man Fatally Struck by Out of Service Caltrain

An out-of-service Caltrain that struck and killed a man in a tunnel in San Francisco tonight has been released from the scene, a spokeswoman said.

The collision occurred in Tunnel One shortly after 9 p.m., Caltrain spokeswoman Jayme Ackemann said.

The train was heading south and continued traveling in that direction once it was released as of about 10:45 p.m., she said.

Once crews clean up the scene, all trains will be allowed to resume regular scheduled service, Ackemann said.

BART will continue to accept Caltrain tickets at Millbrae for passengers heading north, Caltrain officials said.

No further details were immediately available.
