A Rancho Cordova woman was struck and killed by a Regional Transit train Friday evening, officials said.

RT spokeswoman Alane Masui said the woman walked into the path of an arriving train at the Cordova Town Center station. The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office identified the deceased woman as Yong Day, 56.

“People need to be aware of oncoming trains from both directions,” Masui said.

She declined to say if weather was a factor in the death, but noted that the driver tried to stop.
