Traffic was halted on one of Atlanta's commuter rail lines after a woman's body was found on the tracks.

Atlanta Fire Department Capt. Bill May says it wasn't clear if a train had struck the woman, whose body was found near a station of the commuter rail service called MARTA.

May said a train was cleared of passengers after the discovery Thursday night, and the passengers were taken to their destination by bus.

The woman was not immediately identified.

A message left seeking comment from a MARTA spokeswoman wasn't immediately returned.
