DELRAY BEACH (CBSMiami/AP) — Florida's new high-speed train has led to another fatality.

Authorities say a man has been hit and killed by a high speed train in southern Florida.

The Delray Beach Police Department announced on Twitter that a pedestrian was hit Sunday by a northbound Brightline train about 100 feet south of a crossing.

He died at the scene, police said.

Police were asking witnesses to call them with information.

This is the fourth person the train has struck and killed since service began between Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach earlier this year. Three others were hit and survived.

Train officials said last month that they've stepped up safety measures, warning people that this train travels faster than other trains that pass through the area.
