The incident happened just before 6:45 p.m. at the Redwood City Caltrain station, according to SamTrans spokesperson Tasha Bartholomew.

Bartholomew said the pedestrian tripped while trying to catch a northbound El Camino Real bus. The rear wheels of the bus then ran over both of the pedestrian’s legs.

The pedestrian was taken to Stanford Hospital for observation, according to Bartholomew.

The Redwood City Caltrain station was closed in the wake of the incident and was not expected to reopen until the end of the day, Bartholomew said. Buses that service the station will make pickups and drop-offs on El Camino Real until it reopens.
