DEL MAR (CNS) - A passenger train struck and killed a retirement-age man on a stretch of rail near Seagrove Park Tuesday.

The northbound Amtrak train hit the 71-year-old pedestrian off the 1400 block of Ocean Avenue in Del Mar shortly before 11:30 a.m., according to sheriff's officials. His name was withheld pending family notification.

Rail service through the area was suspended for about two hours. Affected commuters were offered bus service prior to the restart of train runs along the North County coastal route.
