An eastbound Long Island Rail Road train struck a person on the tracks near the Wyandanch station on Monday afternoon.

The person was hit at about 1:30 p.m. by the 12:14 p.m. train from Penn Station due in Ronkonkoma at 1:37 p.m., according to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

LIRR service had been suspended for about an hour in both directions between Farmingdale and Ronkonkoma on the Main Line while MTA police responded to the scene to investigate. Service was restored in time for the evening rush-hour commute.

The condition and identity of the person was not immediately available.
