Monday, August 17, 2015, a man was killed by a Metrolink train.
The case is still under investigation.
Unfortunately, in many parts of LA and around LA, people are injured or killed by trains.
At this point it is not known what went wrong. Did the person not hear the train? Time will tell.
Here is a tweet Metrolink put out:
AV Line 201 to Lancaster struck a person on the tracks near Sylmar. Delays unknown. Updates to follow.
