Santa Ana, CA (July 8, 2022) – One person was killed in a fatal pedestrian accident that took place on railroad tracks in Santa Ana.
According to officials, the accident happened around 11:32 p.m. on the railroad tracks near the area of Grand Avenue and Chestnut Avenue. Police immediately arrived at the scene, where they discovered that a pedestrian had been walking in the area when they were struck by an Amtrak train. The operator did not see the pedestrian until it was too late. However, once the collision happened, they stopped and remained at the scene.
Paramedics, fire crews, and several other responders were dispatched to the scene to help those in need. The pedestrian, who has not yet been identified, was tragically pronounced dead at the scene. Nobody in the train sustained injuries as a result of the crash.
The area was blocked near the intersection for an extended period of time. Train traffic was stopped in the area for hours following the crash.
