SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco police say an 11-year-old boy was struck and killed by a light-rail train as he ran across a street.

The boy was killed Tuesday in the city's Oceanview neighborhood.

Two drivers came to sudden stops before the boy was struck by the train.

Witness James Hayter told KGO-TV the boy's parents were hysterical, and the mom tried to pull him out from under the train.

It was not clear whether anybody was on board the train when the boy was struck.
