FAIRFIELD - A Norwalk man has been identified as the person killed by a Metro-North train Wednesday night.
MTA police identified the man as Jason Daniel Bernstein, 25, of Norwalk.
Bernstein was hit by a train at the Fairfield Metro train station Wednesday night, leading to several hours of delays on the Metro-North’s New Haven Line.
Metro-North reported no delays Thursday morning.
Fairfield police alerted the public to the incident around 7:30 p.m. Fairfield police said units were on scene at 300 Ash Creek Blvd. alongside MTA units investigating after a “pedestrian” was hit by a train.
Metro-North Railroad said it received initial reports of the incident closer to 7:15 p.m.
One of the riders on the train told Hearst Connecticut Media that it was the 5:46 p.m. train out of Grand Central Terminal. Metro-North Railroad confirmed that was the train involved in the incident.
Around 8:10 p.m., Metro-North tweeted that the New Haven Line was seeing delays of up to 35 minutes because of speed restrictions between the Southport and Fairfield Metro stations.
Just before 8:40 p.m., Metro-North said the New Haven Line was seeing delays of up to 20 minutes because of speed restrictions and single-tracking between Southport and Stratford.
Around 11 p.m., the railroad said service was on or close to schedule.
