Woman struck by Metro train in Central Long Beach

A Metro Blue Line train struck a woman entering a track at Long Beach Boulevard and 10th Street late Sunday morning, according to L.A. Metro spokesperson Dave Sotero.

Sotero said the woman entered the track, stepping onto the path as the train was heading northbound.

The woman suffered “multiple traumatic injuries,” and was transported “in serious condition” by the Long Beach Fire Department to a local hospital, LBFD spokesperson Brian Fisk said.

The incident temporarily interrupted normal train service around 10:05 a.m. but resumed at 11:30 a.m. In the meantime, Metro provided a temporary shuttle to transport commuters from the Anaheim Station to Downtown.
