HAZLET, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Transit rail riders are facing delays on the North Jersey Coast Line after a train struck and killed a pedestrian, the agency said.

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

The name of the pedestrian has not been released.

Rail service was suspended in both directions between Red Bank and Aberdeen-Matawan for more than two hours during the investigation, with substitute bus service shutting commuters between the affected station.

Service was restored about 7:45 a.m. with delays up to 30 minutes in both directions.
