(CBS) — A motorcyclist apparently trying to take a shortcut was struck and killed by a Metra BNSF line express train near Harlem Avenue in Riverside.

Metra spokesman Tom Miller said the motorcyclist was trespassing on the BNSF right-of-way at about 6:45 p.m. when struck by the train, which was not scheduled to stop at Harlem Avenue and was running express to Naperville.

The follow-up investigation at the scene of the accident halted trains in both directions for more than two hours, delaying nine trains in both directions.

No one else was injured in the accident.
