The victim was reportedly walking on the sidewalk when he approached the railroad crossing. He waited until the westbound Metrolink passed.
The victim apparently did not see or hear a second oncoming eastbound Metrolink train approaching and proceeded to cross. The train fatally struck the teen.
Officials are unsure how fast the train was traveling, and some residents said the trains travel too fast for the area. Others are calling for more safety features.
"I'm not blaming the railroad company, but that school has a responsibility, and the community has a responsibility," said resident Danny Atkinson.
Atkinson pointed out that there are crossing guards at a nearby light where cars pass, but nobody watches young pedestrians at the railroad crossing.
"We got a 60 mile an hour train coming here. Nobody's watching the kids," he said.
There were 15 people aboard the train at the time, but no one inside was injured.
