STAFFORD, Texas (AP) Police say a bicycle rider has died after being struck by a passenger train in a Houston-area accident.
An Amtrak spokesman says the accident happened Wednesday night in Stafford. Cliff Cole says the Sunset Limited train was bound from New Orleans to Los Angeles when the cyclist was hit just south of the Houston station.
Stafford police are investigating. The name of the victim wasn't immediately released.
Nobody on the train was injured. Amtrak officials say the train was delayed for more than three hours during the investigation before the trip resumed.
Stafford is 10 miles southwest of Houston.
