A man was hit by a southbound Amtrak train Saturday morning but little was released about his condition. 

Around 8:39 a.m., Amtrak Train 67 hit a trespasser just south of Marine Corps Base Quantico on its way from Boston to Newport News, said an Amtrak spokesman.

None of the 174 passengers was injured, and the train was delayed about 2 1/2 hours.

A Prince William County Police Department spokesman said the man was still alive, but no details would be available until Monday about his condition.
