A Guadalupe woman was killed when her vehicle was struck by an Amtrak train Monday afternoon. 

The collision occurred around 3 p.m. at a railroad tracks crossing near Guadalupe Street (Highway 1) and West Main Street (Highway 166), according to authorities. 

The driver, a Guadalupe resident, was pronounced dead at the scene and the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Coroner’s Office personnel were en route. 

The vehicle, a Saturn Vue, came to rest on its side, more than one rail car length from the intersection.

Police were investigating statements from witnesses who reported that the driver went around the railroad crossing arms, which showed signs of damage from the crash.

Highway 166 was closed at Obispo Street and the northbound Amtrak train was expected to be stopped for about three hours at the scene. 

Guadalupe fire and police personnel responded to the collision scene, along with the California Highway Patrol and sheriff’s deputies. 

The Guadalupe Police Department is reportedly taking the lead to investigate the case, with assistance from sheriff’s deputies and the CHP, Public Safety Director Gary Hoving said.
