The “unauthorized individual on the tracks” was struck by the train while traveling east toward Greenport when the incident occurred in the region close to Carroll Avenue. Because authorities need to contact the victim’s next of kin, the identity of the deceased has not been made public at this time.
Because of the incident, the 7:30 a.m. train departing from Ronkonkoma and scheduled to arrive in Greenport at 8:54 a.m. was running 2 hours and 35 minutes late through Mattituck, according to a notification posted by the LIRR earlier on Monday. Before recently, LIRR service was discontinued in both directions east of Ronkonkoma; however, service has since been resumed.
It is slated for a train to leave Mattituck at 1:46 in the afternoon and arrive in Greenport at 2:10 in the afternoon. After that, at exactly 14:43, that train pulls away from the Greenport station. According to a spokeswoman for the MTA, the tracks ought to be clean in time for those trains.
