WALLINGFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A person has been killed by an Amtrak train in Connecticut.

Amtrak spokesman Cliff Cole says the train on the New Haven-Springfield line struck the trespasser Friday morning in Wallingford. None of the 25 passengers or crew was injured.

Service has been suspended and Amtrak is providing alternate bus transportation for passengers traveling between Berlin and New Haven.

The railroad fatality is the second in Wallingford since Dec. 5.
