On February 29, 2016, Santa Clara County Sheriff's deputies responded to the area of N. 1st Street at Sonora, in San Jose for a report of a person and his dog who accidentally walked into the path of a VTA light rail train and were struck. The owner was treated at the scene. His dog, Charlie, was thrown from the impact and is currently being treated at a local vet. The Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office is trying to raise funds to help with the medical treatment expense, which his owner is currently unable to pay for. Any amount will help and thank you in advance.
