Authorities in Fort Worth say a teenager was struck and killed by a train on Thursday morning.

Initial reports were that the victim was a child, but officers are now telling KRLD that the victim appears to be around 18-years-old.

Police are still investigating the incident and have not uncovered the details surrounding the death.

“It’s difficult to say,” said Raymond Bush with the Fort Worth Police Department. “It involves death, so we’re going to involve our homicide unit as standard procedure. We don’t know the details of how it happened.”

The accident happened in the Edge Cliff Village area, south of I-20.

It’s unclear as to who called the accident in to authorities or who the victim is.
