Jerome Thomas Reed, 81, has been identified by the San Mateo County coroner’s office as the man who was fatally struck by a Caltrain last week at the Brewster Avenue grade crossing in Redwood City, according to Bay City News.
Reed was struck a little after 5 p.m. by southbound train No. 366. None of the 454 people aboard was injured.
The collision is under investigation by the San Mateo County sheriff’s Transit Police Bureau. In early reports by Caltrain, Reed was trespassing at the time of the collision.
It was Caltrain’s fifth fatality this year.
