BREAKING NEWS: A man was struck and killed by an NJ Transit train on an overpass east of the Garfield station this afternoon in what authorities told CLIFFVIEW PILOT initially appeared to be an accident.

About 100 people were aboard when the adult black male was struck as he walked on the elevated platform over River Drive near Hobart Place at 2:03 p.m., a source with direct knowledge of the incident told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

The Waldwick-bound No. 1259 train continued roughly 300 yards before coming to a full stop.

Service on the Bergen County Line service was temporarily suspended between Secaucus and Glen Rock.

“All customers were transferred to bus service or utilized other means of transportation,” William Smith, NJ Transit’s senior public information officer, told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .
