A bicyclist was struck and killed by a light-rail train on the Blue Line in south Minneapolis Monday night. 

The fatal collision happened just before 9 p.m. near the intersection of E. 35th St. and Hiawatha Ave. The victim's identity has not been released other than Metro Transit authorities revealing that it was a male on the bicycle who died. 

Investigators are working to determine what led to the incident and are going through surveillance video and interviewing possible witnesses.
