A woman in her 30s was struck and killed Saturday by a Metro Expo line train in the Jefferson Park community of Los Angeles.
There was no immediate word of why the woman was on or near the tracks.
Paramedics and firefighters dispatched at 10:41 a.m. to 3645 S. 11th Ave. pronounced the woman dead at the scene, according to Margaret Stewart of the Los Angeles Fire Department.
Metro stopped trains on the Expo Line between the Western and Crenshaw stations and set up bus service for passengers between those stops, said Metro spokeswoman Kim Upton, who advised riders heading to Saturday’s 1 p.m. USC game at the Coliseum to leave early or consider other routes.
All Expo stations were re-opened at 2:10 p.m., Upton said, adding that riders could expect short delays of up to 20 minutes at first, which would gradually subside.
