LIRR Train Hits Car in Brentwood, Service Suspended

Long Island Rail Road service is suspended in both directions between the Farmingdale and Ronkonkoma branches after a non-passenger train hit a vehicle Tuesday morning.

The westbound equipment train collided with the car just east of the Brentwood station shortly after 10 a.m., a LIRR spokesman said.

Based on information from previous incidents the railroad said train service will remain suspended for several hours.

The railroad has yet to release the condition of anyone involved in the crash.
