A female pedestrian was struck by a Long Island Rail Road train at the Bay Shore station about 8:30 a.m. Thursday, officials said.

The woman, who was not identified, was taken alive to a hospital, said LIRR spokesman Aaron Donovan.

The pedestrian was struck by the 7:31 a.m. train from Speonk that was due in Babylon at 8:31 a.m., Donovan said. 

The train and a subsequent one heading to Babylon were delayed, Donovan said. The train that struck the woman ended up resuming its route at about 9:30 a.m., more than an hour late. 

Additional train delays are not expected, Donovan said.
