BEVERLY, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say a woman has been struck and killed by a commuter rail train in Beverly.

MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo says the woman was trespassing on the tracks in a wooded area between the Prides Crossing and Montserrat stations at about 9:40 a.m. Wednesday when she was struck.

He says there are no stations of crossings in the area.

The inbound train to North Station was coming from Rockport.

The death remains under investigation and the woman’s name was not immediately made public.
