PLANT CITY, Fla. (AP) - A Florida man was killed when his pickup truck was hit by a CSX train in the Tampa area.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said that Nicholas Benigni died at the scene on Friday.

The sheriff’s office says a CSX train was traveling northbound when Benigni’s truck pulled into its path at a private drive.

Investigators say the private drive doesn’t have crossing arms but is well-marked.

The train applied its brakes and traveled a half mile before it stopped.
