PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Transit authorities say a man was struck and killed by a maintenance train in suburban Philadelphia overnight.

Officials with the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority say the man was on the tracks near the Trevose station in Bucks County when he was struck at about 1 a.m. Monday.

Officials said the man, who was not a SEPTA employee, was pronounced dead at the scene. He hasn’t yet been identified, and investigators are trying to determine why he was on the tracks.

The train was moving equipment in advance of work being done on the line and carried no passengers.
