Man Dies After Being Struck by Red Line Train in Hollywood
A man died after being struck by a Red Line train Tuesday morning in Hollywood, authorities said.
The incident occurred about 5:37 a.m. at the Hollywood/Vine Station, located at 6250 Hollywood Boulevard, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.
The train was headed toward downtown L.A. when it ran over the man, the Fire Department said.
After service was halted at the station, firefighters “were able to get down to the train level and they found the individual underneath the platform, just to one side of the tracks,” said LAFD Capt. Jamie Moore. “Unfortunately, the patient succumbed to his injuries.”
Hollywood Boulevard was temporarily closed between Argyle Avenue and Vine Street as officials investigated the fatality.
After a period of delays, regular service resumed on the Red Line and Purple Line, according to the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
