Bicyclist Paul Candelaria, 26, Hit by VTA Train

SAN JOSE (July 31, 2017)- According to the San Jose Mercury News, a man identified as Paul Candelaria, 26, of San Jose, has been identified as the victim fatally injured in an accident with a light rail train Saturday.

The incident was reported at 4:30 p.m. at the cross roads of Parkmoor Avenue and Race Street.

San Jose Accident at Parkmoor Avenue and Race Street

Paul Candelaria had been riding his bicycle when for unknown reasons he was struck by the train. He sadly did not survive and was pronounced at the scene.

Circumstances pertaining to the cause of the collision and what exactly transpired remain unclear while San Jose authorities continue their investigation.

The deadly accident resulted in major delays until the late evening for anyone on board or needing to ride the train to get to a destination between the San Fernando and Fruitdale stations.


There are still several unanswered questions here. Was there anything defective with the railroad crossing gates and signals? Did the train fail to sound its horn when approaching crossing? Was there adequate or poor crossing designs?  Was there a track defect that may have caused the person to trip or get stuck when crossing the tracks? Police officials will thoroughly look into this incident to determine the exact circumstances and which party or entity to ultimately held accountable. If the fatal pedestrian is found to have not been at fault than the victim’s family will be entitled to a wrongful death claim including funeral expenses and loss of consortium.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.
