Tri-Rail train hits and kills person on the tracks —and ties up commute for hours

The Tri-Rail commute into Miami-Dade from Broward and Palm Beach became an odyssey-length journey Thursday morning after a train fatally struck a person north of the Golden Glades station after 6 a.m.

Along with keeping the 110 passengers on the train for several hours, the incident and investigation shut down the southbound line between Hollywood and the Golden Glades.

Tri-Rail bused passengers between those stations, according to Miami-Dade police.

The identity of the deceased hasn’t been released.

This report will be updated as more information becomes available.
