ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The Florida Highway Patrol says a bicyclist was struck by a SunRail train and later died.

FHP Lt. Kim Montes tells WKMG-TV that the cyclist was hit by the train in Orange County on Thursday just before 6 p.m. Montes says the victim was a man, but did not identify him pending notification of family.

News outlets report that traffic in the area had been backed up, and SunRail says trains were delayed as much as two hours. An investigation is ongoing.
