LIRR service on the Ronkonkoma branch has been suspended in both directions east of Deer Park after a train struck and killed a person who was not supposed to be on the tracks, the commuter railroad said.
The Long Island Rail Road advises passengers to use the Montauk branch, tweeting just before 7 p.m. that the 5:41 p.m. train from Penn Station to Ronkonkoma was delayed at Brentwood.
Previously, service had been suspended east of Farmingdale.
The victim, a male, was struck about 6:50 p.m. just east of Brentwood, an LIRR spokeswoman said.
Other details were not immediately available.
