Florida high-speed train kills bicyclist, 4th death so far

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A fourth person has died in Florida after being struck by a new high-speed train.

Boynton Beach police spokeswoman Stephanie Slater Police said Wednesday the train struck a bicyclist. No other details were released.

Just days earlier, as the new Brightline train was offering preview runs before its debut, it struck and killed a 32-year-old woman who was crossing the tracks. Witnesses told police the woman tried to make it across after the guard rails were down, attempting to beat the train.

The Brightline train began its service Saturday running between Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. It will expand to take passengers from Miami to Orlando.

A woman was struck in July in Boca Raton in an apparent suicide, and another woman was hit in Deerfield Beach.
