NEW YORK — LIRR customers should expect delays during the Friday morning commute after a person was struck by a train.

During the morning commute, Long Island Rail Road temporarily suspended westbound between Jamaica and Penn Station. Service has since been restored with delays.

As of 8:30 a.m., NYC Transit stopped cross-honoring LIRR tickets.

Earlier, LIRR trains were bypassing Kew Gardens, Forest Hills and Woodside and NYC transit was cross-honoring tickets for the E train at Jamaica, Kew Gardens, and Forest Hills, 2 or 3 train at Atlantic Terminal and 34th Street, and on the 7 train at Woodside.

An “unauthorized person” on the tracks was struck by a train near the Woodside Station, LIRR tweeted at 5:08 a.m.

Their condition is not yet known.
