Commuters are facing delays on the North Jersey Coast Line after a train struck and killed a man.

NJ Transit spokesman William Smith says the train was headed for New York City when it hit the man west of the Hazlet Station just before 4:30 a.m. Tuesday.

The 25 passengers aboard the train were taken by bus to the Matawan-Aberdeen Station and placed on another train.

The incident has forced the suspension of service on the North Jersey Coast Line in both directions. Trains were rolling again shortly after 7 a.m. with delays of up to 15 minutes.

The Northeast Corridor line is experiencing delays of up to 15 minutes, eastbound.

NJ Transit is cross-honoring tickets on its buses.
