Authorities say a New Jersey Transit train struck and killed a man in northern New Jersey.

The accident happened just before 4 p.m. Wednesday.

NJ Transit spokesman John Durso Jr. says a Hoboken-bound Bergen Line train struck the man near the Route 46 overpass in Saddle Brook. Rail service there was suspended for about 30 minutes after the accident, but trains have since resumed operations and Durso says there should only be minor residual delays.

A preliminary investigation has concluded the man didn't attempt to move out of the way of the train.

NJ Transit police are investigating.
