LIRR: Person hit by train at Seaford station


A person was struck and killed by a train at the Long Island Rail Road station in Seaford Friday afternoon, causing 20-minute delays on the Babylon Branch in both directions, the LIRR said.

On Twitter, the LIRR said that the victim, an “unauthorized person” on the tracks, was struck at 3:36 p.m. The agency did not provide further details about the victim.

“The LIRR is experiencing scattered, system-wide residual delays east of Jamaica averaging 5-10 minutes due to congestion,” the railroad said.

Nassau County police responded to the station. All service was restored at 5:30 p.m. with minor delays.

This is a developing story.
