GARFIELD, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Branches of the NJ TRANSIT system and the Long Island Rail Road were shut down in separate incidents Wednesday afternoon, after people were struck by trains.
In the first incident around 2 p.m., a man was hit by a Waldwick-bound NJ TRANSIT train near the Garfield station with 100 passengers onboard, officials told CBS2. There were no injuries in the incident, officials said.
The man was in an area where the public is not permitted, officials said.
As of late Wednesday afternoon, service remained suspended between the Secaucus and Glen Rock stations on the Bergen County Rail Line.
Later in the afternoon, the Port Washington Branch on the LIRR was completely suspended in both directions after an unauthorized person was hit by a train at Flushing-Main Street in Queens, officials said.
The condition of the person struck in that incident was not immediately learned.
The New York City subway system was cross-honoring LIRR fares on the No. 7 train at Flushing-Main Street and 61st Street-Woodside.
