ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- About a dozen people who lived in an Ann Arbor park have relocated after being evicted.

The Ann Arbor News reports Thursday that campers who lived in Broadway Park were kicked out of campsites which were along railroad tracks. Authorities gave notice to campers their sites would be cleared. Some tents were destroyed during the removal process.

A transportation department official said while the removal could've been handled better, it had to happen for safety reasons. He cited trespassing on railroad tracks being responsible for multiple deaths in Michigan annually.

An organizer for a homeless advocacy group says he helped find a new place to stay for those displaced. He didn't specify where the campers moved to.
