OCEANSIDE – A pedestrian was struck and killed by a passenger train at an Oceanside rail crossing, a sheriff’s deputy said. Deputies were called to the Cassidy Street grade crossing shortly after 8 p.m. Friday after the pedestrian was struck by a northbound Coaster train, sheriff’s Deputy D. Morabe said.

Morabe said the pedestrian suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene.

The San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office will determine the cause and manner of the pedestrian’s death, according to Morabe.

The sheriff’s office did not indicate why the pedestrian might have been on the tracks at the crossing, which has gates and bells.

    Let's see
    1. Railroad pays their execs millions a year which we repay at the check out lanes.
    2. Train brakes suck and trains have no steering and the trains go well past the sight stopping distance of the train.
    3. This is 2013 with a dozen ways to have video monitoring ahead of the trains to get the trains stopped IN TIME when tracks are obstructed.
    4. We are paying millions for state government and Federal government people and should have no businesses like railroads creating public safety hazards
    .5. Brings us back to doe—3. This is 2013 with a dozen ways to have video monitoring ahead of the trains to get the trains stopped IN TIME when tracks are obstructed.
    Railroads motto should be —ANY TIME COULD BE TANKER TRUCK STUCK TIME instead it's PROFITS FIRST AND SCREW 'em.
