SEFFNER, Fla. (AP) - A train has struck and killed a pedestrian in the Tampa Bay area.

Hillsborough County Sheriff's Detective Larry McKinnon says a westbound CSX Railroad train struck 61-year-old Marvin Edward Herring near a crossing in Seffner late Wednesday.

McKinnon says that when deputies arrived on the scene, they found the Seffner man dead beneath the train. Detectives say it appears that Herring had a medical condition and collapsed between the railroad tracks.

An autopsy is planned to determine the cause of death. McKinnon says no foul play is suspected.

Seffner is about 10 miles west of Tampa.
