LIRR service suspended on Port Washington branch after train hits person

The Long Island Rail Road has suspended all service on the Port Washington branch on Monday after a train struck someone on the tracks at Great Neck station, officials said.

Additionally, officials said service also was suspended on the Long Beach branch due to a third rail power problem east of Valley Stream.

The cause of that problem was not immediately clear -- and it was not clear when the issue would be resolved.
