DEL MAR (CNS) - A person walking on the tracks in Del Mar was hit by a train and taken to a hospital, but the victim's condition was unknown Saturday morning and sheriff's detectives were trying to determine whether this was an attempted suicide.

It occurred at 7:50 p.m. Friday, at mile post marker 244.4 on the bluffs of Del Mar, according to San Diego County Sheriff's Sgt. J. King.

A northbound Coaster train was traveling about 50 mph when the engineer saw a person walking on the tracks, King said. The engineer hit the brakes but was unable to stop the train before it hit the person.

The victim was taken to a hospital, King said. The person's condition, name and gender were not immediately released.

The sheriff's Transportation Enforcement Unit was investigating the collision.

Anyone with information was asked to call the sheriff's department at (858) 565-5200.
