An unidentified man was hit and killed by a train Friday at the Syosset station, the Long Island Rail Road said.

Customers on that train, which was due at Hicksville at 9:40 a.m., were taken by bus to Hicksville and delayed by about 25 minutes.

At least one train on the Huntington-Port Jefferson branch was canceled and several others were delayed as authorities investigated, Arena said.

The death remains under investigation, he said.
