By Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA -- A man is dead after police say he stepped into the path of a high-speed Amtrak train in Philadelphia.

Police say the man, who was in his late 30s or early 40s, was hit by a southbound Acela train shortly after noon Thursday. His identity hasn't been released.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports there were no injuries onboard the train, which was headed from New York to Philadelphia's 30th Street Station.

Trains were delayed up to 90 minutes during the investigation of what police believe was a suicide.
