CHATSWORTH (CNS) - A woman was struck by an Amtrak train today in a tunnel in the Chatsworth area and airlifted to a hospital, authorities said.
Paramedics and an air ambulance were sent to the 10300 block of North Shadow Oaks Drive about 1 p.m., according to the Los Angeles Fire Department. About 100 people were aboard Amtrak train 767 when it struck the unidentified pedestrian, whose condition was not immediately available.
