August 30, 2013
Pismo Beach police have identified a 22-year-old man hit by a train Tuesday as Mark Manuele of Pismo Beach.
Manuele suffered non-life threatening injuries from the collision and received treatment at Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center.
Police say he was riding a bicycle down the train tracks near Highway 101 and Five Cities Drive around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday and did not hear the oncoming train until just before it hit him. Officers are unsure whether the train made direct contact with Manuele’s body or whether it hit his bike.
Union Pacific Railroad investigators have taken over the investigation.
