An Amtrak train collided with a car in San Leandro Tuesday afternoon killing a woman and a young child inside the car.
Firefighters responded at 1:19 p.m. to reports of a collision on the railroad tracks in the area of Washington Avenue and Chapman Road, fire spokeswoman Aisha Knowles said. The crash involved a dark green SUV and an Amtrak train. The train traveled about a quarter of a mile on the tracks after the crash before coming to a stop. A passenger on the train that spoke with KCBS said the train’s whistle was blowing, and the train was braking before the crash.
