A Boston University student was fatally struck by a train on the MBTA commuter rail tracks in Boston’s Allston neighborhood, according to Transit Police.
According to the MBTA, the male victim's body was found shortly after midnight, but it's not known how long he was there.
The victim, 17, was pronounced dead on the scene at 25 Buick Street. His identity has not been released.
Boston University released a statement on Wednesday morning and said, "The University’s thoughts and prayers are with the student’s family."
It appears as though the student was crossing the tracks of the Worcester Line under the Massachusetts Turnpike when he was struck.
The MBTA says though Train 539 was not involved in the incident, Boston Police would not let it move until 2:40 a.m.
All trains are now operating normally.
No foul play is suspected.
The incident remains under investigation.
