Man struck and killed by Metro Gold Line train in Pasadena

Metro officials and L.A. County sheriff’s detectives were investigating the death early Friday of a man who apparently walked in front of a southbound Gold Line train as it was leaving the Del Mar station.

All the warning lights and gates were working properly in the 5:34 a.m. incident, said Jose Ubaldo, a Metro spokesman.

Ubaldo said the man was walking on the north side of Del Mar Boulevard between Arroyo Parkway and Raymond Avenue.

About 40 passengers were evacuated from the train, he said. Service between the Del Mar and Allen stations was limited to one track because of the incident.

Trains along the entire Gold Line were running every 20 minutes, instead of the usual 7 to 8 minutes, he said.
