Pedestrian Fatally Struck by Train Hours After Metro Resumes Service near Gage and Converse Avenues

 
FLORENCE-GRAHAM, CA (November 2, 2019) – A train struck and killed a man late Saturday evening between downtown Los Angeles and Long Beach.
 
The fatal incident happened around 10:40 p.m. on tracks near Gage and Converse avenues. According to reports, two men were apparently trespassing in an area clearly marked as “no entry” when the train passed and struck one of them.
 
As a result, one man died at the scene. The second man managed to jump out of the way. However, officials transported the second person to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
 
The Metro light rail line, which is previously known as the Blue Line, had been closed for much of the year for a $350 million renovation, and was re-opened and re-dedicated Saturday just hours before the fatal collision.
 
The collision was not believed to be related to the renovations, according to authorities.
 
A Line riders were shuttled between stations from shortly after 10:40 p.m. Saturday until 1:20 a.m. Sunday morning.
 
No identifying information is being released at this time. The fatal crash remained under investigation.


During this time of tragedy, we would like to extend our deepest condolences and sympathies to the family and friends of the deceased.
