A Rancho Cucamonga woman, 88, was killed after a Metrolink train hit her vehicle Tuesday around 12 p.m., according to San Bernardino County Sheriff’s officials.
The crash was reported before 12:30 pm on the tracks close to Vineyard Avenue and 8th St., leading to 8th St. being closed between Hellman and Vineyard avenues, the Sheriff’s reports claim.
The woman was killed in her vehicle as she was struck by the train; she is a Rancho Cucamonga resident, authorities said.
It remains unapparent whether the vehicle was attempting to cross the tracks before the train arrived or not.
The incident resulted in at least one additional Los Angeles-bound train being delayed, according to Scott Johnson of Metrolink.
75 passengers were onboard the train at the time of the crash; the train was traveling eastbound to San Bernardino.
Scott Johnson stated the crossing arms were down, and the lights and alarms were working properly before the crash.
