PALM BEACH GARDENS — Police are looking to notify the next of kin for the man who was killed after being struck by a train last night.
Palm Beach Gardens Police spokeswoman Officer Ellen Lovejoy, this morning, said she can not release the victim's name until family is notified, and would identify the victim only as a male.
She also said there was no foul play suspected in his death.
Indications are that the incident happened around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday between PGA and RCA boulevards, Lovejoy said.
Palm Beach Gardens Fire Rescue spokesman Keith Bryer said that one of his engine crews was returning from a training exercise when they spotted the train stopped on the Florida East Coast tracks.
An engineer who was inspecting the tracks indicated that the train might have struck someone, and a deceased person was later discovered, Bryer said.
At the time, investigators were unable to immediately determine whether the victim was male or female, he said.
Police are investigating the incident, and investigators from the FEC Railway were also en route to the scene.
