SAN LEANDRO — A man struck and killed Friday night when he apparently tried to beat an Amtrak train has been identified as Kenneth Casey Poynter, 27, of Oakland, authorities said.
The northbound Capitol Corridor train, traveling at about 76 mph, was crossing Hesperian Boulevard at Springlake Drive shortly after 8 p.m. when Poynter dashed across the tracks after the railroad crossing arms went down and warning lights started flashing, according to police and several witnesses.
Headphones and an MP3 player were later found at the scene, police said.
