Man struck and killed by train at Lynbrook Long Island Railroad station


An unidentified man was struck and killed by a train Thursday night at Lynbrook's Long Island Railroad station, according to Metropolitan Transportation Authority officials.

Service was suspended in both directions on the Long Beach line as homicide detectives investigated the incident. The man was struck by the train at around 8:15 p.m., and his body ended up on the platform. He was pronounced dead.

MTA officials confirmed the incident, but did not offer many details or the person's identity. They said the incident remains under investigation.

Lynbrook Mayor Alan Beach also confirmed the incident to the Herald.

"A person was struck by a train at the Lynbrook station," Beach wrote in a text message. "I don't know any details yet."

The LIRR tweeted that some eastbound Long Beach trains were being rerouted to Freeport, with added stops at Rockville Centre and Baldwin.

MTA officials told the Herald that it could be "some time" before details are released.
