An eastbound Long Island Rail Road train struck a vehicle on the tracks just east of Mattituck Wednesday morning, the railroad said.

It’s not yet clear if anyone was injured in the accident, which occurred just before 11 a.m., a LIRR spokesman said.

The railroad was still waiting on Metropolitan Transit Authority police to confirm if someone was inside the vehicle at the time of the incident, the spokesman said.

The train left Ronkonkoma at 10:42 a.m. and was due to arrive at Greenport at 12:07 p.m. The train is operating two hours late, the LIRR said.

There were no other service delays due to the accident, the railroad said.
