LIRR Babylon service restored after person fatally struck

A woman was fatally struck by a Long Island Rail Road train in Massapequa on Tuesday, suspending service on the Babylon line for part of the evening commute.

An LIRR spokesman said Wednesday morning that no criminality was suspected in the woman’s death. No other details were available.

Service on the Long Island Rail Road’s Babylon line was restored in both directions shortly before 8 p.m. Tuesday, less than two hours after authorities first reported that an unauthorized person on the tracks had been struck by a train.

Service was initially suspended in both directions. Subsequent alerts said eastbound service was first restored, then service in both directions was restored once westbound traffic commenced, though with some delays.
