Man struck by NJ Transit train sustains head injury
A man was injured on Saturday morning after being struck by a NJ Transit train at Hamilton Station. Service was briefly suspended on the Northeast Corridor line.
NJ Transit spokesman Jim Smith told New Jersey 101.5 that the man was struck by a New York-bound train around 9:25 a.m. and sustained a serious head injury. He was transported to a nearby hospital, Smith said.
None of the other 300 passengers onboard the train were injured, though service was suspended on the eastbound side after the incident. Following a 30-minute delay, service was restored at approximately 10:20 a.m.
NJ Transit had previously warned of 15-minute delays on eastbound trains between Woodbridge and New York Penn Station, due to scheduled track repairs. The delays came on a busy travel day, with revelers dressed as Santa Claus heading to annual Santa Con events at locations in New Jersey, New York and Philadelphia.
