  • Caltrain has released a video of a man nearly being struck as he runs across the tracks, reminding people to be careful around crossings.

Caltrain has released video of a man nearly being struck by a speeding train in Redwood City.

The video shows the barriers down and sirens blasting as a group of people race across the tracks. Then at almost the last minute, another man runs across just barely avoiding being struck.

Caltrain officials said this incident happened in February and is a reminder of how not to behave near Caltrain crossings. Caltrain said incidents like this slow the system down as they have to be investigated just like collisions.
