New Jersey Transit says a man was struck and killed by a train in Glen Rock Friday night.

The accident occurred around 6:50 p.m. Friday at a Rock Road crossing gate.

Authorities say the man ducked under the crossing gate shortly before he was struck. His name has not been released, pending notifications of relatives.

NJ Transit spokeswoman Nancy Snyder said there were 450 passengers on the train, which was heading to Port Jervis, N.Y. No one aboard the train was injured, and the passengers were transferred to another train to complete their journey.

NJ Transit said the accident and subsequent investigation caused scattered delays in the region on Friday night.
