Service to NJ Transit stops was reinstated, with delays, Thursday morning after an adult male was struck and killed by a train in Ramsey, NJ Transit Police Spokesperson Nancy Snyder confirmed.At about 5:29 a.m. Thursday, a Hoboken-bound train “struck and fatally injured an adult male trespasser,” about 200 yards west of the Gertzen Plaza train stop in Ramsey, Snyder said.
She declined to comment on why the man was 200 yards west of the station, saying that the incident is currently being investigated by NJ Transit police at the scene.
The seven passengers on the train at the time of the accident and all of the train’s crew members were not hurt, Snyder said.
The incident caused all service on the Main/Bergen Line to be temporarily suspended between Allendale and Suffern, NY, and the Port Jervis rail line to be temporarily suspended east of Suffern, officials said.
NJ Transit is offering cross-honoring of all tickets on Transit buses and private carriers, they said.
As of 10 a.m., service was reinstated, but NJ Transit warned of delays. See the status of the delays on the NJ Transit website.
