Man fatally struck by Amtrak train in Auburn

A Seattle-bound Amtrak train struck and killed a man in Auburn on Friday night, police said.

Amtrak’s Coast Starlight passenger train fatally struck the man at West Main Street and C Street Northwest, Police Department spokesman Cmdr. Steve Stocker said. The intersection is near the Auburn Station.

Auburn police and BNSF Railway police are investigating the incident, Stocker said. BNSF personnel confirmed that the warning devices at the railroad crossing at West Main Street were working propertly, BNSF spokesman Gus Melonas said.

The Coast Starlight train, which travels between Los Angeles and Seattle, is expected to arrive at Seattle’s King Street Station about 10 p.m., about an hour and 20 minutes later than scheduled, according to Amtrak.
