A New Jersey Transit train that was en route to Penn Station struck and killed a person shortly before the Tuesday morning rush hour, causing massive delays.
The train, which had left Trenton after 4 a.m., struck a person around 4:45 a.m. on the Northeast Corridor line headed toward New York, ABC reported. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
The man was struck near the Jersey Avenue station, CBS stated in a related report. The incident resulted in the suspension of Northeast Corridor service, but New Jersey Transit now says that trains are running again.
Trains, though, are currently experiencing 60-minute delays in service between Trenton and Metropark, and Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor line has similar delays between New York City and Philadelphia, according to ABC.
New Jersey Transit has called the incident a “trespasser fatality,” ABC added.
