On the same day of an invitation-only media event, a Brightline high-speed train on Friday struck and killed a woman, the Boynton Beach Police Department said.
Police responded to the incident at about 6:25 p.m. The train was traveling north on the Florida East Coast Railway.
Officials are in the process of notifying next-of-kin.
“It is unclear at this time what she was doing on the tracks,” police said in a statement. “No one on the train was injured.”
Earlier in the day, Brightline officials hosted local media outlets and other representatives to display its new high-speed train service.
