(San Jose, California – October 10, 2023)
A San Jose pedestrian was struck and killed by a northbound Caltrain train on October 10, 2023, near the Skyway Drive Crossing in San Jose, California. The collision involved Caltrain No. 403, which runs from Gilroy to San Francisco.
The name of the individual killed in this tragedy has yet to be released. According to reports from Caltrain spokesperson Dan Lieberman, the collision occurred shortly before 6:30 a.m.
As previously mentioned, this collision occurred near the Skyway Drive Crossing. This crossing and the surrounding area has been the site of dozens of vehicle and non-vehicle collisions with trains over the last decade. The crossing is currently under review for a project to build an overpass that would separate both vehicle and pedestrian traffic from train traffic.
The collision is still under investigation.
