BOSTON (AP) — Authorities say a man was hit and killed by a subway train in Boston.

MBTA Transit Police Superintendent Richard Sullivan says it happened Monday afternoon at the Ruggles Station.

Sullivan says the man was “trespassing on the southbound side” when he was struck by the Orange Line train.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. Officials say transit police and firefighters helped extricate him from the tracks. He wasn’t immediately identified.

Sullivan says there was no foul play involved in the incident.
