The accident happened around 10:20 pm on Thursday, near Auzerais Avenue and Drake Street. A man was reportedly standing on or near the tracks holding something that looked like a weapon to observers. The train struck the pedestrian, who was located by authorities after an extensive search by the 87 Freeway.

The pedestrian was tragically pronounced dead at the scene. The accident remains under investigation by local authorities, and initial reports indicate authorities do not believe this to be a suicide.

“Almost one death or injury per day occurs on the rail system in the United States. Many of these tragic deaths are avoidable, the rail system is antiquated and needs a complete overhaul to ensure the safety of pedestrians, drivers, and train passengers,” said the attorneys from Lexton Law Firm.
