Amtrak train fatally hits person on tracks, causes NJ Transit problems
TRENTON — An Amtrak train fatally struck a person Friday morning, causing problems on the Northeast Corridor.
Amtrak Northeast Corridor Train 141 with 427 passengers on board struck the individual around 10:22 a.m. near Adams Lane in North Brunswick, according to Amtrak spokeswoman Kimberly Woods. No passengers or crew were injured in the incident. The train was headed to Washington from Springfield, Massachusetts.
Woods said passengers were able to transfer to a NJ Transit train and go to Trenton, where they will be able to get on another Amtrak train to Washington.
Service on the Northeast Corridor, which is shared by NJ Transit and Amtrak, was not suspended.
NJ Transit said outbound service was bypassing the Princeton Junction and Hamilton stations. Passengers will have to get off in Trenton to reverse direction to head back east to those stations.
