Trespasser killed on Caltrain tracks in Santa Clara

One person was hit and killed by a Caltrain in Santa Clara Tuesday afternoon, the transit agency reported.

None of the 35 people onboard the train heading from San Francisco to San Jose were injured, according to Caltrain spokesman Haroon Malek.

The incident train has since been released to Diridon station in San Jose and the southbound track has been reopened, Malek said. There are still residual delays in the system.
