A westbound Long Island Rail Road train struck and killed a man near the Syosset station on Friday morning—one stop away from Hicksville, where a similar incident occurred a day prior.

The man was hit shortly before 10 a.m. by the 8:43 a.m. train from Port Jefferson due in Hicksville at 9:40 a.m., according to the MTA.

An LIRR spokesman said the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

MTA Police are continuing the investigation. The victim’s identity was not immediately available.

The incident caused delays on the Port Jeff line through about noon.
