The name of a pedestrian who was struck and killed by an Amtrak passenger train Sunday has been released by the Yolo County Sheriff-Coroner's office.
He was identified as Mitchell Lee Yarrington, 52, of West Sacramento.
Yarrington was walking on the tracks on Sunday afternoon when he was struck by the westbound train near the Harbor Boulevard overpass, said West Sacramento police Sgt. Trent Tyler.
The train had just left Sacramento and was headed toward San Jose when the incident occurred. Another train was dispatched to pick up passengers, Tyler said.
