SunRail commuter service resumes in central Florida after body found on tracks in Sanford


SANFORD, Florida — Authorities say a central Florida commuter train struck and killed a man.

Sunrail service was suspended early Friday after the body was found on the tracks in Sanford, but it resumed later in the morning.

Sanford police officials say a train conductor spotted the body early this morning and contacted police.

Few details were immediately available.

Sunrail service, which began earlier this year, was affected in Volusia, Seminole and Orange counties because of police activity.
