LIRR: Woman struck by train in Forest Hills
The 6 p.m. crash forced the closure of at least two of four tracks and the suspension of several train lines, said Salvatore Arena, an LIRR spokesman.
It was unclear whether the woman, who Metropolitan Transportation Authority police said was about 55 years old, had taken her own life.
Arena said eastbound trains from Penn Station were back on schedule shortly after 8 p.m.
Commuters traveling on the other lines from Penn were asked to take subway trains to either Atlantic or Jamaica stations, where they could board LIRR trains heading to the other destinations.
