Last week, a man was struck and killed by a train at the Lynbrook Long Island Railroad station.
The man has still not been identified, according to MTA officials.
Service was suspended going in both directions on the Long Beach line. Homicide detectives were on the scene investigating the incident. The man was hit by the train at around 8:15 at night. His body ended up on the station platform, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
As of now, the MTA has confirmed that the incident did occur. They have not said the identity of the victim, and they have also said the incident is being investigated.
Service has since been restored. As this story continues to develop, we will keep you updated.
