A man was struck and killed near the Charleston Road rail crossing in Palo Alto on Tuesday at 12:25 p.m., a Caltrain spokesperson said.
The Santa Clara County Medical Examiner-Coroner's Office on Wednesday identified the man as Tone Lee, 22, of Palo Alto.
"No matter what the circumstances, it is always regrettable when a life is lost. Caltrain reminds everyone to be safe around train tracks," Caltrain spokesperson Tasha Bartholomew said in an email.
Palo Alto Unified School District Superintendent Don Austin told the Weekly that the victim was "not a minor."
There were approximately 20 passengers on northbound train No. 117, with no reported injuries onboard.
Palo Alto police issued a traffic alert stating that a train incident had closed the Caltrain crossing, but by 2 p.m. the crossing had been reopened to traffic, although not to pedestrians or bicyclists.
The Transit Police Bureau of the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office is handling the investigation. Updates are available at twitter.com/CaltrainAlerts.
