A Metrolink train headed from the Sylmar station to the Sun Valley station struck and injured a woman and struck and killed a coyote this morning. The incident took place near the 9500 block of North San Fernando Road at around 5 a.m.

The female victim is said to be a 40-year-old pedestrian who sustained injuries to her right hand, arm, and leg, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department. She was transported to a hospital for treatment.

The coyote, however, died on the tracks, notes City News Service.
