Train Kills Pedestrian

2nd Fatality in One Week at Same Railroad Crossing.

In a railroad accident on Friday morning, a 23-year-old Suisun City Man, was killed by a westbound Amtrak train when attempting to cross the railroad tracks at Sunset Avenue.

According to the preliminary investigation, police believe the man was traveling north on Sunset Avenue toward the tracks. At that same time the train was traveling east and the crossing arms were down.

After the eastbound train passed by, the man walked around the crossing arms, and into the path of the westbound train. Police believe the man assumed no other trains would be traveling in the area.

This is the second time this week that someone was killed at this very railroad crossing. Last week, an elderly Suisun City man was hit and killed after driving around the crossing arms.
