(Newser) – Eric Salvatierra, a 39-year-old PayPal executive, was killed on Caltrain tracks in California Friday morning. The married father of three was struck on the northbound tracks, and his death remains under investigation. "All I know is he had his bike," Salvatierra's uncle tells the San Jose Mercury News. "For me and to all of us, this is just an incredible, unexpected loss," the uncle adds. Salvatierra, the vice president of customer advocacy and operational excellence at PayPal, had formerly been the CFO of Skype.
