Tri-Rail service is being delayed Tuesday morning after a train struck and killed a pedestrian in Broward County.

The incident occurred around 5 a.m. between the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport and the Broward Boulevard stops near the Interstate 595 overpass, said Tri-Rail spokeswoman Bonnie Arnold.

At 7:50 a.m., Tri-Rail has eight buses in place to take train commuters around the crash.

Commuters can expect hour and a half delays.  Arnold said commuters should use a different method of transportation if possible.
