Two Killed by Amtrak Train

Larry David McDaniel, 53, and a 52-year-old woman were killed at approximately 6:35pm on Saturday, May 28, 2005, when they were hit by an Amtrak train as they were sitting on the tracks near the intersection of Hesperian Boulevard and Springlake Drive in San Leandro. Police have not released the identity of the woman pending notification to her family.

Police speculate that the victims may have been homeless because there have been a number of complaints about homeless encampents near the area. Suicide has not been ruled out as a reason for why the two victims were sitting on the tracks.

Update: The woman was identified as Susan Diane Haskett-Mayo, 52, of San Lorenzo.
