ELMWOOD PARK, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Transit says a man was struck and killed by a train in northern New Jersey.
NJ.com reports that the accident occurred around 1:40 p.m. Saturday, just east of the Broadway station near the border of Elmwood Park and Fair Lawn.
No passengers were aboard the Hoboken-bound Bergen County Line train at the time.
The name of the man killed was not disclosed, pending notification of relatives. Authorities were working to determine how the accident occurred.
