The crash happened near the underpass below Highway 101, north of the Southpoint Boulevard crossing.
 
“This was quite a distance from a crossing,” Gonzalez stated. “Why this person was on the rail line has not been determined.”
 
Petaluma police and SMART authorities are handling the investigation.
 
“The man was walking south along the tracks near a trestle close to the Petaluma outlet mall,” Cox stated.
 
Then, the train crews turned on its horn as it approached a small curve. However, it couldn’t slow in time to avoid the crash.

Furthermore, the incident involved the 5 a.m. train, the first southbound train, with 25 occupants inside.
 
“The train was delayed for a period,” Gonzalez said. “Those passengers were taken to the Petaluma station, where they were met by the next southbound train and then continued on their journey.”
 
Due to the incident, the crash canceled the train’s scheduled trip north. After an hour, the trains’ schedule was normalized.
