At around 8:30 a.m. today, a train struck and killed a man in his early 50s near the trestle over the Mokelumne River.

The train blocked traffic in Downtown from Lockeford to Pine streets for at least an hour. Lodi Police Sgt. Steve Maynard said the man did not have any identification, so the department is waiting for the San Joaquin Coroner to release his identity.

    Seriously Darrell ? With this day and age when alot of people walk around with a phone stuck to their brain ? Oblivion comes at you one way or another.

    When I was young I used to ride a bike to Lodi and had three choices - two of which was and still its illegal - ride the bridge at 99 , ride the tressel or ride through Woodbridge. My parents suggested starting a petition to create a walk bridge across the river. I didn't do it as I didn't have the gumption or know how to . I noticed that that subject has come up again in recent years. Money doesn't equate and yet you can have a liberal viewpoint and just say money doesn't matter. A death is still a death and the logic is - what is that worth? There is a limit to what a perfect world is and how far money will go.
    I am truely sorry for yet another death on that set of tracks . They are hazardous no matter how you look at it. Hope not to see you facing the same circumstance - as a train is very unforgiving. Each one of us is special in our own way . It would be better if we didn't think so though. "It couldn't happen to me".

    I agree with Darrell, autopsy should provide some answers.

    I walk over that trestle about two times per week and see the two memorial crosses that are there. . You can see and hear the train coming long before it gets to where anyone would be walking on the tracks. I cannot imagine how someone could not see or hear the train coming and walk off to safety, unless they were out of their minds.

    Strange.
