Pedestrian is struck, killed by Metro Blue Line train
A pedestrian was struck and killed Friday afternoon by a Metro Blue Line train at the Artesia station, a spokesman for the transit authority said.
The accident involving a southbound train occurred at 3:27 p.m. and the pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene, said Metro spokesman Rick Jager.
Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies were still investigating, Jager said, and no information was immediately available about the age or gender of the victim.
It was not immediately known what led to the fatal collision.
"There are going to be some delays until the investigation is concluded," he said.
