A man in a motorized wheelchair or scooter who was on the Long Island Rail Road tracks east of Riverhead was struck by a train Tuesday morning, the railroad said.
The man, who was conscious, was taken to Peconic Bay Medical Center in Riverhead, and his medical condition was not known, a railroad spokesman said.
The accident occurred at 10:26 a.m. when the 9:43 a.m. train from Greenport, due in Ronkonkoma at 11:06 a.m., hit the man, the railroad said.
Service resumed and the train, which had six passengers, was running 94 minutes late as a result of the accident, the railroad said in an update just before noon.
