A woman thought to be in her 60s was hit and killed by an Amtrak train this morning near Doran Street and San Fernando Road, according to the Glendale News-Press. "Witnesses report that the woman was pushing a shopping cart along San Fernando Road when she approached the tracks at about 11:30 a.m. The Amtrak engineer rang the horn several times, but [the victim allegedly] didn’t stop." She was struck by the train after she stumbled onto the tracks. "Amtrak passengers remained onboard the train while police and fire investigated the grisly scene." As a result trains in the area experienced delays, and passengers were put on buses to get around the scene of the fatal accident.
