SFFD Spokesperson Lt. Mindy Talmadge confirms to the Appeal that the fire department was called to Castro Station at 4:40 this afternoon, after a pedestrian on the tracks was apparently hit by a Muni train.
“We’re not sure how he got on the tracks” Talmadge said “we attempted to revive him and when it was evident that he had expired, we called the Medical Examiner.”
Some riders reported being stuck in the trains for 40 minutes or more, according to the report (see more updates from the SFAppeal).
KCBS also reports the fatality.
