Officials say two people have been struck and killed by a train on Long Island.
Metropolitan Transportation Authority spokesman Sam Zambuto says the two female victims were struck on the tracks just west of the Copiague Station on the Long Island Rail Road's Babylon Branch at about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Zambuto says the two victims, who were not authorized to be on the tracks, were hit by an eastbound train that was not carrying any passengers. MTA police are investigating. The victim's identities had not yet been released.
LIRR service on the Babylon Branch is now running on or close to schedule in both directions.
