By Kelly Goff, January 11, 2014

A man was struck and killed by a Metrolink train in Glassell Park on Saturday afternoon while reportedly walking along the tracks.

The man, who has not yet been identified, was struck by a the Antelope Valley-bound train just before 4:30 p.m., according to Katherine Main, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Fire Department. He was declared dead at the scene.

The crash happened near the 2700 block of Media Center Drive.

The fatal collision caused Metrolink to cancel trains along the Antelope Valley line and replace them with bus service while authorities investigated in the incident.

No one on the train was hurt.
