A pedestrian was killed Saturday morning after being struck by a Metro Expo Line train near Crenshaw. The victim, identified as a 40-year-old woman, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The accident occurred at 10:40 a.m. near 11th Avenue and West Exposition Boulevard, according to the L.A. Times. Expo line service was stopped between Crenshaw Boulevard and Western Avenue after the accident, with shuttle service replacing the light rail. The trains resumed normal service a little after 2 p.m., running normally everywhere but between Expo/Western and Expo/Crenshaw, where it is sharing one track. Delays will continue through 3:15 p.m. Saturday.

The victim was not immediately identified, according to ABC.
