A person was struck and killed by a train passing through the Iselin section of Woodbridge at approximately 4:30 pm today.
NJ Transit officials called the victim a 'tresspasser,' and said that Amtrak officials and Woodbridge police are handling the incident.
John Hagerty, spokesman for the township, said that township police are on the scene, but that Amtrak is in charge "since it's their train line."
NJ Transit put out an advisory that train service on both the Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast lines is being delayed from 30 to 60 minutes because of the train fatality.
Amtrak trains pass through the Metropark train station located in Iselin. The rail line, a main hub of activity from Trenton to New York, is the Northeast Corridor Line.
Travel on the North Jersey Coastline, a shore spur which connects to the main Northeast Corridor line and runs from Woodbridge to Bay Head, is also affected.
Updates will be posted as they are received.
