PACOIMA - A man who police believe was trying to kill his girlfriend today by abandoning her in a parked car on railroad tracks ahead of a speeding Metrolink train was killed instead, authorities said.
The man and his girlfriend, who was listed in serious condition after the crash, were stopped behind two cars at the tracks near Brandford Street and San Fernando Road just after noon as the train approached, said LAPD spokesman Kevin Maiberger.
He drove his car around the two cars, through the crossing arms and parked the car on the tracks, with the train approaching directly toward the passenger side, where his girlfriend was seated, Maiberger said.
"He was trying to get of the car and out of the way and she was in the car, but he wound up getting killed because the car (spun around after being hit by the train and) hit him," Maiberger said.
"She was in the car, but not in the area that got the bulk of the hit."
The man died at the scene and the woman was taken to a hospital where she was listed in serious condition, he said.
