A pedestrian was dragged and killed by a light rail train between the Globe Station and the Arden/Del Paso Station Tuesday afternoon.

The line of track between the two stations, stretching about a half mile, is shut down while Sacramento Regional Transit and Police officers investigate the scene.

The man reportedly was climbing between the first and second cars of a four-car train at the Globe Station, at Globe Avenue and Del Paso Boulevard at about 3:50 p.m.

Witnesses say the man may have been intoxicated.

RT issued a service disruption on the blue line. Shuttle buses will drive passengers between the Alkali Flat/La Valentina station to the Marconi station.
