A pedestrian was struck and killed by a Caltrain in Sunnyvale this morning, according to Caltrain officials.

Train No. 426 was traveling south near Mary Avenue, which is close to the border with Mountain View, where it struck and killed a male pedestrian at 11:39 a.m., Caltrain officials said.

Caltrain officials said there were approximately 100 passengers on board the train at the time of the incident.

The train’s route has been terminated at Mountain View and Caltrain officials said they will be using a single track to go around the collision scene.
