A freight train fatally struck someone on the tracks near Wayzata High School over the weekend, authorities said.

The incident occurred about 10 a.m. Saturday southwest of where the school's football, soccer and track facility is located, according to Plymouth police.

Authorities have yet to identify the victim or explain what led to that person being on the tracks when the eastbound Canadian Pacific Railway train came through.
