POMPANO BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - A person was fatally struck by a Virgin Trains USA train in Pompano Beach.

Broward Sheriff’s Office and Fire Rescue units responded to the southbound tracks near South Dixie Highway and Southwest Third Avenue, just before 12:30 p.m., Friday.

7SkyForce HD was over the scene where a yellow tarp covering a body could be seen off the tracks, near the train, which still had the former Brightline paint scheme painted on it. Brightline is now Virgin Trains USA.

Since the scene wasn’t near an intersection, traffic in the area was not affected.

No one on board the train was injured.
