An investigation is underway after a person was struck and killed by a train near Santa Barbara Monday night.
A Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office spokeperson confirmed the sheriff's office is handling the coroner's investigation.
While the spokesperon did not provide the location of the incident, a medical emergency was reported in the area of Modoc Road and Encore Drive around 10:10 p.m., according to Pulse Point.
The Pacific Surfliner was stopped north of Santa Barbara as of 10:15 p.m. due to what was described as a “trespasser incident.”
