INLAND EMPIRE – A third person has died on the railroad tracks of San Bernardino County.

Witnesses say the warning lights were flashing and the gates lowered when he rode into the path of an oncoming Metrolink train. The Fontana boy was listening to music with his earbuds and may not have been aware of the approaching train.
