A pedestrian was hit by a Metrolink train and killed Tuesday in the Sun Valley area.

The fatal injury was reported about 6:45 a.m. near the 7400 block of North Coldwater Canyon Avenue, the Los Angeles Fire Department reported.

Information was not immediately available on the identity or gender of the fatally injured person. Nor was there any speculation about why the victim was on the tracks when the train came by.

Coldwater Canyon Avenue was closed in the area, as was a section of the railroad tracks, while an investigation was conducted into the death, the LAFD reported.

Metrolink train 102 on the Ventura County Line was heading to Los Angeles when it hit the pedestrian, and it was stopped in the area, according to Metrolink.
