ACE train kills child in Santa Clara

A woman was killed in a collision between a car and an Altamont Corridor Express train east of the ACE Livermore station in Livermore, Calif. July 22, 2019.

Authorities are trying to determine how a “very young minor” got onto railroad tracks in Santa Clara Saturday night and was hit and killed by an Amtrak train.

The accident occurred about 4:19 p.m. along the Union Pacific tracks in Santa Clara. Police Capt. Wahid Kazem said it isn’t clear as to why the child was on the tracks or how the child got there, but stressed it was an accident and not a deliberate act. He couldn’t provide the child’s age.

Passenger trains operated by Amtrak and by the Altamont Corridor Express have been delayed as a result of the accident. Amtrak’s Capital Corridor trains in and out of San Jose, as well as one eastbound ACE train destined for Stockton, have been held as the investigation continues.
