NEW JERSEY — A “trespasser fatality” near Chatham prompted the partial suspension of two NJ Transit lines during the Monday morning rush-hour commute.

Morris and Essex lines were suspended in both directions between Chatham and Summit, NJ Transit tweeted at 6:49 a.m.

The suspension was “due to a trespasser fatality near Chatham.”

Service resumed by 8 a.m., but commuters still faced hourlong delays, according to NJ Transit.
