A bicyclist died Thursday when he rode around train track warning arms and was hit by a Metrolink train, the county coroner announced today.

Dale Hummels, 23, of Whittier, died at the scene of the crash around 7:15 a.m.

Witnesses said they saw Hummels riding west in eastbound lanes when he scooted around the lowered warning arms, City News Service reported. The coroner said Hummels' death was an accident, not a suicide.
