Long Island Rail Road riders going between Mineola and Carle Place are facing delays due to a fatality on the tracks.

According to the MTA, a person was struck and killed by an early-morning train at the Carle Place station. The incident occurred on the western end of the eastbound platform near the intersection of Cherry Lane and Atlantic Avenue at around 9:30 a.m.

After a temporary suspension of service between Hicksville and Mineola, LIRR trains are moving on a single-track, causing delays of up to one hour.

The 54 year old male victim has not been identified and the exact circumstances of the accident are under investigation by the MTA police.

Wow, that's pretty harsh, I'm sure that guy feels bad about costing you maybe an hour. Maybe when he's identified you can go meet his family and get your apology. If you're so short of time maybe you can save a few minutes by keeping your horrible selfishness to yourself and out of these comments. By the way, now you owe me a few minutes.

DanTe So sorry that you were inconveinenced! Maybe you can explain your side to his 12 year old daughter who's father is now never coming home again.

DanTe Appears by your non-stop posts on this site you have a lot of nothing relevant to say,which is why you’re comments are always deleted. It is sad to see HEARTLESS people post such disgusting comments.
