A man was killed on the Caltrain tracks in Palo Alto this morning, a Caltrain spokeswoman said.
The man was hit by northbound train No. 211 at Charleston Road, spokeswoman Christine Dunn said. Riders are advised to expect major delays throughout the morning commute.
Shortly before 8 a.m., Dunn said the southbound track had reopened, and that trains would be able to single-track through the area at slow speeds.
This is the fifth fatality on the Caltrain right of way this year.
