Two people were struck and killed on Caltrain tracks on Saturday in Palo Alto and Menlo Park. The first victim was a man struck at the California Avenue Caltrain station in Palo Alto. He was hit by northbound Baby Bullet #801 at 11:10 a.m. The second person was hit by southbound express train #482 just north of the Menlo Park station.
The victim in the Menlo Park incident has been identified as Jayne Cox, 27, of Folsom, according to the San Mateo County Coroner's Office.
At approximately 1:15 p.m., a clean-up crew and assistants from the Santa Clara County Coroner's Office arrived at the California Avenue station to remove the body. The Santa Clara County Coroner will be handling the investigation in Palo Alto, while the San Mateo County Coroner is leading the investigation in Menlo Park.
Over a hundred passengers on board the southbound train elected to disembark at the Menlo Park station, according to a statement from Caltrain Public Information Officer Christine Dunn.
By 12:50 p.m., Caltrain had resumed service for both directions on a single track and by 4 p.m. trains had resumed their normal schedule.
Palo Alto resident Brian Moritz was waiting at the California Avenue station for a southbound train to San Jose when the clean-up crew arrived. He was unaware of the fatality.
"I assumed that's what it was," he said. "Usually when they say there's an incident, that's what it is." He said he would continue waiting for the train despite delays.
Saturday's deaths are the 15th and 16th on Caltrain's tracks this year, and come shortly after .
