IEOC Service Disruption Metrolink Train 851 struck a person by the San Clemente station. Calling buses to get passengers from incident...I was just down there the other day and shot some video in that same area.
The OC Register is starting to cover the story here.
A Metrolink train fatally struck a person Monday afternoon between the San Juan Capistrano and San Clemente stations, Metrolink officials said.
The fatal crash occurred at about 12:15 p.m. in the 35000 block of Beach Road, authorities said.
The crash involved train No. 851 on the Inland Empire-Orange County line, which was headed southbound from Riverside to Oceanside, said Metrolink spokeswoman Sherita Coffelt.
Being that the area in question is single-tracked, until they move the Metrolink train nothing else will get through there, so Amtrak service will be disrupted too.
