Bicyclist Struck and Killed By Train in Fort Lauderdale

A bicyclist was struck and killed by a commuter train in Fort Lauderdale Monday afternoon.

Aerial footage showed a mangled pink bike near a tarp-covered body along the track just south of the Cypress Creek Tri-Rail station.

The man was riding his bike when he attempted to cross the railroad tracks around 4:20 p.m., Fort Lauderdale police said. The crossing guard arms were in the down position, but the man went under the guard arms to cross the tracks, officials said.

The man died at the scene. His identity was not yet released.

There were traffic and tri-rail delays as authorities investigated the deadly accident.
