Man struck by NJ Transit train in Newark
NEWARK — A man crossing a set of NJ Transit tracks was struck by a train and pinned against a retaining wall during the Friday morning commute.
The #6202 train that left Montclair State University at 5:10 a.m. with 130 passengers and crew, struck the man around 5:30 a.m near Newark's Broad Street station, according to spokesman Jim Smith.
The passengers were not moved to another train.
The incident led to a suspension of service on the Morris & Essex Line between East Orange and Hoboken and New York Penn Station. The Montclair-Boonton Line is also suspended from Watsessing Avenue to Hoboken and New York Penn Station.
Service was restored just before 8 a.m.
NJ Transit continued cross honoring tickets with NJ Transit buses, DeCamp and Lakeland Bus.
