A freight train struck a body lying on the tracks in Pompano Beach.

The train struck the body of a man shortly before 10:30 a.m. Wednesday on the Florida East Coast Railway tracks near the 900 block of Dixie Highway.

Broward Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Gina Carter said the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Carter said people who work in the area often saw the man walking near the tracks.

The victim has not been identified.

No foul play is suspected, but a medical examiner will try to determine the cause of death.
