BETHPAGE, Long Island (PIX11) -- Service on the Long Island Rail Road has resumed with delays after someone was struck by a train, according to the MTA.

It happened west of the Farmingdale Station. Service had been suspended on the Ronkonkoma Branch in both directions between Ronkonkoma and Hicksville, the MTA said in a 6:27 a.m. update.

About an hour later, the agency tweeted that service was restored in both directions but commuters should expect delays up to 90 minutes.

Train troubles began about 5:30 a.m., the agency said. Further information, including the victim’s status, was not immediately available.

Commuters were urged to use alternate branches, such as the Montauk or Port Jefferson branches, to get to their destinations.
