NEW YORK CITY — Rush-hour commuters traveling to Philadelphia on Amtrak should expect hour-long delays after a track death in New Jersey Monday afternoon, a spokeswoman for the railway said.
An unidentified man was struck by Train 2163 in Iselin, N.J., traveling to D.C. from New York about 3:37 p.m, an Amtrak spokeswoman said. None of the 206 passengers on board were injured.
The train was halted for about an hour, but the delay caused a ripple effect on the passenger railroad's timetable, spokewoman Vernae Graham added.
The delays should decrease over the evening, she noted.
