Man killed by Caltrain in Sunnyvale 

A man was struck and killed by a Caltrain at the Lawrence train station in Sunnyvale, an agency spokeswoman said.

At about 6:45 p.m., southbound train No. 274 struck the man, spokeswoman Tasha Bartholomew said. The 125 passengers who were aboard that train were transported to a rescue train that continued to San Jose. Trains were stopped in both directions for a period of time until trains began single-tracking through the affected area.

Bartholomew said earlier tonight that all tracks were expected to reopen around 10 p.m. Caltrain experienced delays of up to 90 minutes. This is the 11th fatality on the Caltrain right-of-way this year. The cause of the man's death was still under investigation and will be determined by the county coroner following a complete investigation.
