A 23-year-old man was critically injured when he was struck by an Amtrak train on the Santa Fe railroad tracks near the 11800 block of Sorrento Valley Road, the San Diego Fire Department said.
Guadalupe Lopez Gonzalez, 23, an illegal alien from Mexico, suffered head injuries and was in critical condition Monday night at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, nursing supervisor Carla Badd said.
Lopez and three other men were walking across a trestle near Torrey Pines State Park about 9 a.m. when the train, traveling at 79 m.p.h., came down the tracks, a Fire Department spokeswoman said.
The three unidentified men jumped from the bridge, and two of them suffered leg injuries. Lopez was struck by the train.
