Earlier, the LIRR reported delays on the branch after a truck struck an LIRR bridge, according to the LIRR.

The delays were averaging 15 to 20 minutes in both directions because trains were operating at a reduced speed after the bridge strike near the Flushing-Main Street station, the LIRR said in a service update on its website.
