NAUGATUCK, Conn. (AP) - Police with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority are investigating the death of a 39-year-old man who was struck by a Metro-North train near the Naugatuck station.

Authorities say the man was struck shortly before 7 p.m. Tuesday about 800 feet south of the station. Officials say it’s not clear why he was on the tracks.

The MTA and Naugatuck police haven’t released the man’s name.

The train that struck the man left Bridgeport at about 6 p.m. and was due to arrive in Waterbury at about 7 p.m. Metro-North provided bus service for Waterbury Branch commuters for several hours while the tracks were closed after the accident.
