WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) – Metro-North service between Waterbury and Naugatuck has been restored after a train struck and killed a man at Waterbury.

Metro-North spokeswoman Marjorie Anders said the unidentified man was trespassing on Metro-North’s right-of-way. He was struck by an empty train at 5:05 a.m. Wednesday as it headed to the station to pick up its first passengers.

The train was taken out of service and passengers instead were bused to Naugatuck.

Anders said service resumed at 8 a.m.
