NORTH BERWICK, Maine (AP) - Authorities say an Amtrak Downeaster train has struck and killed a person on the tracks in North Berwick.

The train, full of passengers, struck the person just after 7 p.m. Wednesday.

His name has not been made public but authorities say he lived in town.

An Amtrak spokesman says 88 passengers were on board the northbound train, but no passengers or crew were injured.

The death caused significant delays on the line.

Local police and Pan Am Railways, which owns the rail line, are investigating.
