NJ Transit trains between New York and Newark were delayed for up to 60 minutes Friday morning after an Amtrak train hit a person in Secaucus, the agency said.

The transportation agency tweeted that service was suspended between the two stations at about 6:40 a.m. because of a “trespasser strike.” Service was restored by around 7:15 a.m., but extensive delays were expected.

Some Amtrak trains also were delayed because of the incident.

Further details were not immediately available.
