FAIRFIELD – A man was struck and killed by a Metro-North train Wednesday night, Faifield police have confirmed.

One of the riders on the train told Hearst Connecticut Media that it was the 5:46 p.m. train out of Grand Central Terminal. Metro-North Railroad confirmed that was the train involved in the incident.

Around 8:10 p.m., Metro-North tweeted that the New Haven Line was seeing delays of up to 35 minutes because of speed restrictions between the Southport and Fairfield Metro stations.

Just before 8:40 p.m., Metro-North said the New Haven Line was seeing delays of up to 20 minutes because of speed restrictions and single-tracking between Southport and Stratford.

Around 11 p.m., the railroad said service was on or close to schedule.
