Death on train tracks disrupts morning commute in NYC
NEW YORK (AP) — Authorities say a person was struck and killed by a Long Island Rail Road train, leading to widespread travel disruptions.
The unidentified person was hit by a train at the Woodside station in Queens around 5 a.m. Friday.
Service between Penn Station and Jamaica was suspended while authorities investigated the death.
A Metropolitan Transportation Authority spokesman says limited service has resumed. He says trains are running at reduced speeds and are bypassing the Kew Gardens, Forest Hills and Woodside stations.
