KENLY, N.C. (AP) - Authorities say someone has died after being struck by a passenger train in Wilson County.

Amtrak officials tell local media outlets that a train traveling from Miami to New York hit a person on the tracks at around 2:45 a.m. Sunday in Kenly.

It was not clear why the individual was on the tracks. Officials said none of the more than 300 passengers were hurt, but the train was delayed while authorities investigated.

The crew requested to be relieved after the crash, and the train resumed its journey to New York once the new crew arrived.
