A pedestrian hit and killed on Regional Transit light-rail tracks Tuesday morning in south Sacramento has been identified by Sacramento County coroner’s deputies.

The fatal incident occurred near 26th Avenue and 24th Street when Calvin D. Deal, 65, of Sacramento was hit by a southbound light-rail train about 6:20 a.m. The train operator was not able to see Deal in the predawn darkness soon enough to stop in time, an RT spokeswoman said.
