Metro-North Train Hits Person on Tracks: Officials

A Metro-North train struck a person on the tracks in Westchester and is causing some delays on the Hudson line, officials say.

The person appeared to be trespassing on the tracks at the Croton-Harmon station and was hit by a train at about 3:45 p.m., according to Metro-North. 

The train, which had departed Grand Central about an hour earlier and was heading to Poughkeepsie, had passengers on it. They were being taken off the train and accommodated on another train. 

Delays of about 10 to 20 minutes were being reported on the line.

EMS and MTA police remain on the scene, Metro-North said. The victim's condition wasn't immediately clear.
