HOLLYWOOD (CBSLA.com) — A man was struck and killed by a Metro Red Line train in Hollywood early Tuesday morning, authorities said.

The victim died at the scene, authorities said. His name was not immediately released.

Metro passengers saw delays of up to 25 minutes after the station at Hollywood and Vine until about 7 a.m., Metro reported.

Sheriff’s investigators were talking to bystanders and checking surveillance video to determine whether the man jumped, fell or was pushed onto the tracks.
