NJ Transit train hit, kills pedestrian

    Trains resumed rolling on New Jersey Transit’s North Jersey Coast Line after a train struck and killed a man on the tracks.

    The New York-bound train was carrying approximately 125 passengers and crew when the incident took place just west of the Hazlet station around 5:25 a.m. Tuesday.

    The man’s name has not been released.

    NJ Transit operated bus service between Red Bank and Matawan-Aberdeen because service was suspended for several hours in both directions.
