REDWOOD CITY (BCN)

A woman was struck and killed by a train at Caltrain’s Redwood City station this morning, an agency spokeswoman said.

The woman was struck at about 6:15 a.m. by Caltrain No. 305 on the northbound tracks at the station located at 1 James Ave., Caltrain spokeswoman Christine Dunn said.

Train No. 305 had about 200 passengers on board and was not scheduled to stop at Redwood City. The train was eventually moved to the San Carlos station to allow the passengers to get off, then was taken to a maintenance facility in San Jose, Dunn said.

As of about 7 a.m., trains began single-tracking through the area on the southbound tracks but did not stop at the Redwood City station, according to Dunn. Bus shuttles were also taking passengers between the San Carlos and Menlo Park stations, she said.

Some train routes have been canceled this morning while others are being delayed by 20 or more minutes, Dunn said.
