Caltrain strikes, kills RWC man 

A pedestrian who died after being hit by a Caltrain vehicle Friday morning in San Bruno has been identified as a 52-year-old Redwood City man, according to the San Mateo County coroner's office.

Jon Armstrong was hit at about 6:30 a.m. in the pedestrian crossing area at the north end of the San Bruno Caltrain Station, located at 481 Huntington Ave., Caltrain spokeswoman Christine Dunn said.

Armstrong, who was hit by northbound express train 305, was Caltrain's third fatality this year.

Dunn said the gate was down when Armstrong crossed the track.

"The lights and bells were all operating," she said.

After the incident, Caltrain vehicles were run on a single track and experienced delays of up to an hour.

The tracks were reopened at 9:15 a.m., and all the trains were operating on time by this afternoon.
