FREEPORT, N.Y. (AP) - The Long Island Rail Road says service on the Port Washington branch has been restored after a person was struck and killed by a train.

The LIRR tells Newsday (https://nwsdy.li/1S0AkvM ) that the person, who was not authorized to be on the tracks, was hit around 1:30 a.m. Monday.

Service on the Port Washington branch was suspended in both directions between Penn Station and Flushing/Main Street at about 4:45 a.m., and restored by 6 a.m.

The LIRR reports that a person also was struck and killed by a train at the Freeport Station on Sunday. It identified the victim only as a 40-year-old man. He was taken to Nassau University Medical Center, where he later died.

Both incidents are under investigation.
