OAKLAND -- A 59-year-old man who was struck and killed by a train Wednesday near San Lorenzo High School has been identified.
The man was identified as Luis Sanchez by the Alameda County Coroner's office on Thursday. His city of residence was not listed, a coroner's spokesman said.
Sanchez was on the tracks near Lewelling Boulevard about 2:30 p.m. Wednesday when he was struck by a Capitol Corridor trained headed to San Jose from Sacramento, an Amtrak spokesman said. He was transported to a hospital where he later died.
The death remains under investigation, said Alameda County Sheriff's office spokesman Sgt. J.D. Nelson Thursday.
Sanchez was the second person struck and hit by a train in that area in the last month. On April 11, Austin Price, a 15-year-old sophomore, and two other boys were playing a game of "chicken" on their bikes, racing a train and trying to cross in front of it, along the tracks near Lewelling Boulevard and Via Granada, when Price was hit and killed. It was not clear Thursday night if Sanchez had any connection to the high school as district officials were not immediately available for comment.
