Someone was just hit by the Southern Pacific train near Amador Valley HS. Looks like Santa Rita is blocked. Emergency crews all over. Not sure if it was a student.

This will cause long delays for anyone riding the ACE train today.

My daughter just came from Amador, and it is believed to be a student. This isn't verified, but I'm trying to find out, too, because several of my daughter's friends knew a girl who threatened to do this today. :-( Horrible.

just got this from the PUSD website:
There has been a fatal accident on the train tracks near Amador Valley High School. The train is currently stopped and is blocking Santa Rita Road. The coroner has confirmed that an Amador Valley student was involved.
Mr. Coupe will be meeting with his staff this afternoon. Counselors are on call for support on Tuesday and over the weekend if needed.
We will send out more information if/when it becomes available.
Please avoid the area at this time. If you need to access Amador Valley, use Del Valle on the south side or enter the student parking lot on the north side.

My heart and prayers go out to the parents and family. So tragic for someone so young to feel they have no other way out. Everyone....extra hugs and kisses for your kids tonight.

Oh my God; this is so tragic. If it was this girl, or if it was not, and she was threatening suicide to several kids why wouldn't someone bring it to the school or parent's attention???????

Dear God, Please encourage your kids to talk to you if they hear any sort of threats such as these; maybe one person could help prevent this kind of tragedy by speaking up.

The kids at Amador have all had "suicide training", correct? They MUST know, they ALL must know that if another student threatens suicide, especially if the person says HOW they're going to commit suicide, that the person is in danger.

To Local2/Cupertino, how can your daughter's friends have let the girl walk out of the school today if they heard the girl say she was planning to kill herself?

I just can't understand it. I'm writing this wonderingly, NOT accusingly. I have a teenaged son--not at Amador--but I'm sure that if he heard another student say that they were going to commit suicide, he wouldn't let them out of his sight (and I'm going to talk to him and make sure that's what he'd do when I see him tonight).

i completely agree. How could no one do anything or sayanything to someone? she was crying out for help and no one helped her.

This was no ones fault. No one might have noticed she left. She could have had early day. Lets just pray for her family and hope nothing else happens like this again. <3
