San Leandro police Lt. Jeff Tudor said the pedestrian died as a result. Railroad police are taking over the investigation because the crash was on the tracks, not a city street, he said.
There were no injuries to the 35 passengers on board or to any crew members, Graham said.
The train has been cancelled and passengers transferred to another Capital Corridor train, she said. No major delays were reported as officials waited for the incident to be cleared.READ MORE: Big Rig Ends Up Perched Precariously On Guardrail After Crash On I-5 In Woodland

In a separate incident at 10:30 a.m., San Joaquin train No. 701 from Bakersfield to Sacramento struck a pedestrian west of the city of Merced.
