Two of three people who died on Bay Area railroad tracks on Saturday have been identified. Within a little more than one hour, two people were struck and killed by trains in Palo Alto and Menlo Park, a Caltrain spokesperson has confirmed. A man died at Palo Alto's California Avenue station; the second, a woman, was struck and killed just north of the Menlo Park station.

That was pretty harsh DePortum. And as far as safety is concerned there's only so much that can be done to keep folks off the tracks. For every new safety barrier there's a new way around it.
