Man fatally struck by train in Pico Rivera

PICO RIVERA — A man died Saturday after being struck by a freight train near Whittier Boulevard, authorities said.
The incident was reported about 12:15 p.m. on a set of train tracks near the intersection of Whittier Boulevard and Grape Street, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Andrew Meyer said.
The man, initially described as appearing to be about 50 years old, was struck by an eastbound Union Pacific train, the lieutenant said.
“It looks like the person was sitting on the tracks and did not move when the train honked,” he said.
Detectives from the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau were summoned to investigate the scene.
