Second person struck by SMART train in two days


A person was hit Friday morning by a Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit train in Rohnert Park, the second pedestrian incident in two days on the North Bay tracks, officials said.

The transit agency issued an alert shortly before 7 a.m. Friday, but no other information was immediately available.

Trains were being delayed on the line and a bus bridge will be used for all stations north of Cotati. Buses will serve Cotati, Rohnert Park, Santa Rosa Downtown, Santa Rosa North, and Sonoma County Airport Stations, with stops at all stations.

Trains will be providing service to all stations south, from Cotati to San Rafael, according to the transit agency.

A woman who was struck and killed Thursday morning by a SMART train in Rohnert Park apparently ignored the crossing arms and tried to run across the tracks when she was hit, according to the Rohnert Park Department of Public Safety.
