A bicyclist was treated for nonlife-threatening injuries after being struck by a Long Island Rail Road train in Port Jefferson Wednesday night, a Metropolitan Transportation Authority spokesman said.

The train came into contact with the cyclist about 6:20 p.m. at the Main Street, spokesman Aaron Donovan said. The train left Penn Station at 4:19 p.m. and struck the rider just before it was arriving at its final stop. He was treated at Stony Brook Hospital, Donovan said.
