NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Long Island Rail Road service is back to normal after it was suspended Friday on several lines when a man was struck and killed on the tracks in New Hyde Park.

Service was restored between Jamaica and Hicksville on the Port Jefferson, Ronkonkoma and Oyster Bay branches just before 1:30 p.m.

Around noon, service was suspended when a man was struck by an empty train, the MTA said. LIRR officials said the man wasn’t authorized to be on the tracks.
