Man Killed by Train Was From Camarillo

June 14, 2003|From a Times Staff Writer

A man killed by an Amtrak train near Ventura was identified Friday as 65-year-old Rudy Lopez of Camarillo.

Lopez was out for a walk Thursday near Emma Wood State Beach, where his family had previously camped, said Senior Deputy Medical Examiner Mike Feiler.

He was on the track about 2:30 p.m. when a northbound Amtrak train approached. The engineer blew the whistle seven times, Feiler said, but Lopez apparently didn't hear it at first and could not get out of the way in time. He was struck and died immediately.

Family members said Lopez was hard of hearing and was not wearing his hearing aid, Feiler said.
