REDWOOD CITY -- A woman was killed when she was hit by a Caltrain on Friday morning in Redwood City.
The incident occurred about 6:15 a.m., when a Caltrain traveling north from San Jose struck and killed the woman on the tracks, Caltrain spokeswoman Jayme Ackemann said. The train, an express train that moves through the Redwood City station without stopping, was scheduled to arrive in San Francisco at 6:42 a.m. but made only two stops in Mountain View and Palo Alto before the incident occurred.
The train that hit the woman was rerouted to the San Carlos station about 7:30 a.m., and all 200 passengers on board moved to another train, Ackemann said. SamTrans set up a bus bridge between San Carlos and Menlo Park stations, which was canceled at 10 a.m.
The Redwood City station reopened about 9:50 a.m., and all passengers there and in San Carlos were required to board from the southbound platform, Ackemann said. The southbound tracks reopened about 7 a.m. to slow-moving trains, and the northbound tracks reopened at 11:30 a.m.
All trains were back on schedule by noon, officials said.
