Police officials confirm a man was killed after he was hit by a train late this afternoon after he was trespassing on the tracks in the 1300 block of Railroad Avenue.

ACE Train spokesperson Thomas Reeves told Patch that a man who had been on the tracks was a "trespasser."

"ACE 04 struck a trespasser who was on the tracks just before 5 pm. All trains are late but on their way back home this evening. No delays anticipated for tomorrow."

Officer Traci Rebiejo says that around 4:45 p.m., Livermore Police responded to a 911 call reporting that a pedestrian had been hit by the train.

"Officers responded and found a man who was deceased after being hit by a train," Rebiejo said.

Livermore Pleasanton fire officials say the man appeared to have been "walking his bicycle across the tracks at the time of the incident."

"Truck 96 was first on scene and found a victim deceased on the side of the train tracks," Battalion Chief Jack Neiman-Kimel said. "The train had stopped further down the tracks for further assessment.  We were unable to determine the age of the male victim. The victim was deceased on impact and the case was turned over to Livermore PD and the Alameda County Coroner."

The identity of the pedestrian has not yet been released. The train was shut down during the incident, causing delays for rush hour commuters trying to get home, according to posts on the Altamont Commuter Express Facebook page.

If anyone has information or witnessed the collision, they are encouraged to call the Livermore Police Department at 925-580-9665.

I love the Patch, however, Autumn Johnson "(Editor)" has began deleting comments at her own discretion. This is a clear indication of bias journalism. I speak my mind and if it is something she doesn't agree with she deletes it. I have read the "rules" and have followed them. Still Johnson feels the need to single me out. Why? cause they call me a troll, well guess what Johnson, trolls have feelings too.
