Caltrain strikes pedestrian in Mountain View

A pedestrian was struck and killed by a Caltrain at the San Antonio station in Mountain View Wednesday evening, a transit agency spokeswoman said.

Passengers boarded another train and bus bridges are being coordinated with the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority to transport
