The San Mateo County coroner is asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who was killed on Caltrain tracks in San Mateo last Friday. The victim was struck by a southbound train at the East Fifth Avenue track crossing at about 4:45 p.m., Coroner Robert Foucrault said. The man, who was approximately 60 to 75 years old, was not carrying any identification, and an extensive search of fingerprint databases — including the DMV, criminal records and the U.S. military — have not yielded any results, Foucrault said.
The victim was riding a “Go-Go Pride Mobility” scooter when he was struck, Foucrault said. The serial numbers on the scooter had been scratched off. The man was described as white, around 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighing about 130 pounds. He had brown eyes, a gray moustache and gray and silver hair that was cut in a flat-top. He was last seen wearing a black Fumagalli pea coat, an Old Navy button-down black short-sleeve shirt, black Old Navy pants, black socks and black leather shoes.
Anyone who might have information about the victim or the case is asked to contact the San Mateo County coroner’s office at (650) 312-5562.
