The Broward Sheriff’s office on Tuesday identified the bicyclist who was killed by an oncoming Tri-Rail train in Dania Beach.
The bicyclist, Jerry Smith, was hit by the train that was traveling north on Stirling Road on Monday evening. After inspecting all safety equipment, officials determined Smith had failed to yield to warnings and moved around the gate to cross the tracks ahead of the train.
The death investigation tied up train and car traffic for more than an hour.
The 53-year-old Plantation man died at the train crossing.
