Oakland-Man Killed When His Car Collided With An Amtrak Train

A man was killed on Sunday morning, June 2, 2019, when an Amtrak train crashed into his vehicle on railroad tracks in Oakland, according to officials. The crash occurred just past 11 am, close to the intersection of 85th Avenue and San Leandro Street. The incident has been ruled as a suicide by the Alameda County Coroner’s Office, according to Heather Mozdean. Mozdean is a Battalion Chief at the Oakland Fire Department.

According to Mozdean, the man deliberately drove to the railroad tracks. His vehicle was hit by the incoming Amtrak train. The train was a Capital Corridor 728 train travelling from San Jose to Oakland. According to Mozdean, all 64 passengers on board the Amtrak train were not injured. The vehicle the man was driving caught on fire after it was struck by the Amtrak train. The identity of the man was not revealed.
