A pedestrian was killed in Del Mar after being hit by a train Sunday, March 17, authorities reported.

The victim, an unidentified man, was hit by the train at about 9:50 p.m. just north of Torrey Pines State Beach, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department. The type of train involved was also not identified.

“Sheriff’s Deputies from the North Coastal Patrol Station and fire personnel responded to the scene and declared the involved subject deceased from obvious signs of death due to the injuries he sustained,” the Sheriff’s Department stated in its report.

The sheriff’s Transit Enforcement Unit is investigating the incident since it occurred on North County Transit District property.
