NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – A person was struck and killed by a Long Island Rail Road train in Nassau County on Wednesday morning, officials said.

The Penn Station–bound train from Lindenhurst struck a person who was on the tracks near Rockville Centre around 7 a.m., MTA officials said.

Trains on the Babylon branch were held at stations and then rerouted as passengers were put on another train, according to the Daily News.

Some trains were canceled or delayed amid the investigation.

No one else was reported injured.

The person is the third killed by an LIRR train since October, when there were two deadly incidents, according to the Daily News.
