NEW HYDE PARK, N.Y. (AP) — A LIRR train has struck and killed a person on the tracks at New Hyde Park.

It wasn’t immediately known how the person got on the tracks. It occurred at 8:30 a.m. Monday.

The railroad says the person was not authorized to be there. The incident is under investigation.

Service has been temporarily suspended on the main line in both directions between Penn Station and Hicksville. The accident also is affecting trains on the Port Jefferson, Ronkonkoma and Oyster Bay branches.

The LIRR says the person was struck by a westbound train that had left Oyster Bay at 7:41 a.m. and was due in Hunter’s Pint at 8:55 a.m.
