WESTPORT, Conn. – Transit police are investigating the death of a man who had been trespassing on train tracks in Connecticut.
Metro-North officials say the man was hit by a New Haven-bound train shortly before 11:30 a.m. Wednesday.
The train had left Grand Central Terminal in New York City at 10:04 a.m. and was to arrive in New Haven at 12:10 p.m.
But the collision just east of the Westport station caused delays of up to 40 minutes on the New Haven Line.
Metropolitan Transportation Authority police are investigating. Officials say it’s not clear why the man was on the tracks.
