Riverside woman dies when hit by train in Jurupa Valley


A 36-year-old Riverside woman was killed Saturday, Oct. 2, when she was hit by a freight train in Jurupa Valley, officials said.

Anna Garcia was struck at 9:26 a.m., the Riverside County Coroner’s Office said. An online obituary said Anna Marie Garcia was a native of Riverside.

The collision with the westbound train happened near the crossing at Galena and Rutile streets, said Robynn Tysver, a Union Pacific spokesperson. No one on the train was injured, Tysver said.

The Sheriff’s Department, which is listed as the investigative agency on the coroner’s news release, had not responded to requests for details on the circumstances of the death as of Tuesday.
