Delray Beach Police say a train-pedestrian incident Wednesday was due to an apparent suicide attempt.
It happened on the Tri-Rail tracks along Northwest 17th Avenue around 8:15 a.m. The conductor says he saw a man and woman standing on the tracks and tried to stop the train.
The southbound Tri-Rail train slammed into the pair and came to a stop just north of Lake Ida Road.
The victims were taken to a trauma center in serious condition.
There were no injuries on the train and no crossings are blocked.
