A Long Island Rail Road train headed for Montauk is being held up in Amityville after it struck and killed a man on the tracks on Saturday afternoon.
As police investigated, between 110 and 150 passengers were stuck on the eastbound train, which left Jamaica at 12:10 p.m. The accident occurred at about 12:45 p.m. The train was due in Montauk at 3 p.m.
Trains were delayed in both directions. Though service was expected to be restored soon, trains will be bypassing the Amityville station during the investigation.
