2 dead after being struck by train in Brooklyn

EAST NEW YORK, Brooklyn — Two people were fatally struck by a train in Brooklyn Thursday, according to the FDNY.

The pair was struck at Broadway Junction.

One of the victims was pronounced dead at the scene; the other died after being rushed to the hospital, FDNY said. Additional information about the victims was not immediately available.

The incident was affecting multiple subway lines during the evening rush, according to the MTA.

As of 10:25 p.m., these services changes were in effect on the A and C lines in Brooklyn:

  • The LIRR is no longer accommodating NYC Transit customers.
  • Northbound C Subway trains continue to run express from Euclid Av to Hoyt-Schermerhorn.
  • Northbound A Subway and C Subway trains are bypassing Broadway Junction.

See a station agent for a courtesy pass for continuing subway or bus service.

For service to/from bypassed stations, take a Euclid Av-bound C Subway train to transfer for local service at either Euclid Av, Utica Av or Hoyt-Schermerhorn.

As an alternative, for local service between Euclid Av and Broadway Junction, consider taking the nearby Q24 bus.
