    An Amtrak train struck a pedestrian in Mansfield, Massachusetts, on Wednesday.

    A Massachusetts commuter rail station will be closed Thursday morning after a pedestrian was struck and killed by an Amtrak train Wednesday.

    Mansfield Police said around 3 p.m. that police and fire were at the scene of a train versus pedestrian accident at the Mansfield Train Station. The victim's name has not been released.

    Amtrak said the police activity caused some delays. Providence commuter rail lines were also experiencing delays, according to the MBTA.

    Keolis, the company that operates the commuter rail, confirmed Wednesday night that the station would be closed Thursday morning, likely causing delays on the Providence Line that could even extend into the evening.

    "Drivers are advised to go to Route 128 parking garage to catch the inbound commuter rail," Keolis said in a statement. "There will be limited parking at Mansfield with connecting busing service to Sharon."

    The investigation is ongoing.
