A woman crossing the tracks in Chatsworth last night via a pedestrian walkway was struck and killed by an Amtrak train, reports KTLA. The accident happened at around 8:00 p.m. Wednesday night near 21700 Lassen Street.

According to Los Angeles Police Department detective Bill Bustos the woman, whose identity has not been released, "was visiting family from San Francisco," and as part of the preliminary investigation authorities believe she "didn't see or hear the train" and did not commit suicide.

The victim was found deceased on scene by Los Angeles Fire Department personnel. No one on the train was injured.
