Train hits pedestrian in Encinitas

A train hit a pedestrian near a railroad crossing in Encinitas on Monday afternoon, a sheriff’s official said.

The crash happened just after 3 p.m. on the tracks that run across Chestfield Drive near San Elijo Avenue. No details about the injuries the pedestrian suffered were immediately available.

Chestfield Drive was shut down between San Elijo Avenue and South Coast Highway 101 while deputies investigated the crash. In a tweet, the Sheriff’s Department asked the public to avoid the area.

The crash forced a Coaster commuter train to stop south of a station in Solana Beach. A bus was sent to “accommodate” passengers on that train, according to a North County Transit District tweet.
