Man killed after struck by train in central Fresno

A man pushing a bicycle across tracks in central Fresno was struck by a train and died Friday night, police said.

The incident happened around 5:30 p.m. at Golden State Boulevard and Pine Avenue, according to Lt. Bill Dooley.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

He was identified Monday by the Fresno County Coroner’s Office as Ricardo Limas, 55, of Fresno.

The conductor told officers the train was traveling southbound from McKinley Avenue when he saw the man pushing a bicycle and sounded the horn, Dooley said. However, the man did not pay attention and was struck.

There’s no indication the incident was suicidal.
