LIRR Ronkonkoma service restored

Posted: Updated:

Long Island Rail Road has restored service in both directions on the Ronkonkoma branch.

Full service came back at 8:42 a.m. Friday. But the railroad says it is continuing to experience systemwide delays.

Service had been suspended between Ronkonkoma and Farmingdale after a pedestrian was struck and killed by a New York-bound train.

The agency says the incident occurred at a grade-level crossing on Fifth Avenue east of Deer Park around 5:45 a.m.

The accident involved the 5:29 a.m. train from Ronkonkoma, due in Penn Station at 6:38 a.m.

The circumstance of the incident is under investigation.
