STRATFORD, Conn. (AP) - A Metro-North train struck and killed a 46-year-old man near the Stratford station in Connecticut, forcing officials to suspend service for about an hour. Continuing delays are reported.

The commuter railroad says service on its New Haven Line between New Haven and Bridgeport was suspended for about an hour while police investigated the accident, which happened just after noon on Friday.

The railroad says the train, which left New York at 10:34 a.m., hit a man who was trespassing on the tracks. His name hasn’t been released.

Metro-North reported delays of up to 15 minutes on trains running between New Haven and Stamford on Friday afternoon because of the accident.
