MANASQUAN — A man was struck and killed by an NJ Transit train on Monday night, the second such incident in the past week.
The male was hit near Manasquan Station on the North Jersey Coast Line by Train 4378, which was headed for New York around 7:30 p.m., according to NJ Transit spokesman Jim Smith.
