The girl was struck in what appeared to be an intentional act around 10:45 p.m. at the East Meadow Drive crossing, Caltrain spokeswoman Christine Dunn said.

The girl is the 10th person to be fatally struck by a Caltrain this year, four of which have been deemed suicides, Dunn said.

Another Gunn student, a 17-year-old girl, was killed by a train June 2 also at the same crossing. Dunn said her death also appeared to be intentional
