Only a week after Metrolink trains killed two people last Wednesday, another fatal train accident has happened, according to reports. In downtown Los Angeles, a Blue Line train ran over a man who was on the tracks, killing him.
The Blue Line train accident in LA took pace at Flower Street and Venice Boulevard on Wednesday night, on the northbound tracks. When the train ran the man over, he became trapped underneath.
When paramedics arrived, the man was already dead. According to the Los Angeles Fire Department, how the man ended up on the track is still unknown. Authorities suspect he must have either fell or jumped onto the tracks, accidentally or intentionally causing his own death.
The unidentified victim was around 50 years old, says authorities.
