Bicyclist Struck & Killed By Train On Bond Road In Elk Grove

Around 5:00 PM, Monday, a man was struck by a freight train, riding his bike. The incident occurred near Bond Road, east of Elk Grove Florin Road. The bicyclist was going east on Bond Road when a train going northbound collided with him as he was riding on the north side of the roadway.
