Man found dead on Expo Line tracks in Culver City

Los Angeles County officials were investigating the death of a man found on the Expo Line tracks in Culver City early Sunday.

Firefighters were called to the line's Culver City station just before 1:30 a.m. and pronounced the man dead at the scene, said Los Angeles County sheriff's Sgt. Andrew Bedogne. The sheriff's Transit Services Bureau was also called to the station to begin an investigation.

Bedogne said the incident was initially being treated as an accidental death and investigators were waiting for more information from the coroner's department.

The coroner's department declined to release the man's name, pending notification of next of kin.

Train service was not interrupted, Bedogne said.
