The person, who was not immediately identified, was hit shortly before 5 a.m., a spokesman said. As a result, LIRR trains were running with delays and cancellations for more than two hours. Service was restored at Kew Gardens, Forest Hills and Woodside at about 7:30 a.m. after earlier suspensions, but delays were still averaging 15 to 20 minutes in both directions between Jamaica and Penn Station, the MTA said.
