Northbound Metrolink service delayed after train hits person in Oceanside

Northbound train service from Oceanside was suspended Wednesday morning after a freight train struck someone in the early hours, Metrolink officials said.

Passengers were being bused to stations in San Clemente, San Juan Capistrano and Irvine, according to Metrolink spokeswoman Angie Starr. She said service could resume about 9 a.m. or 10 a.m.

A Burlington Northern Santa Fe train hit the person between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. in Oceanside, Starr said.

Amtrak service also was diverted.
