SCARSDALE, NY — Details have been released about the person who was struck and killed by a Metro-North train Wednesday at the Scarsdale station. A spokesperson for the railroad said the incident occurred about 9:20 a.m. Wednesday when the 8:26 a.m. southbound train from Southeast struck someone who was not authorized to be on the tracks.

The man, whose name has not been released pending notification of family, was 64 years old.

The MTA police are investigating the incident, which, according to the spokesperson, appears to be non-criminal and non-accidental in nature.

Service was suspended during the investigation, but resumed shortly after noon, though there were substantial delays.

Northeastern US storm train to end with severe weather, tornado risk.
This week's stormy weather pattern in the northeastern United States is coming to an end, but not before severe thunderstorms and tornadoes threaten on Thursday. The same system that unleashed damaging winds and large hail across the Central states at midweek is on the move toward more heavily populated areas along the Atlantic coast. "On Thursday, the entire corridor from Atlanta and Charlotte, North Carolina, to Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and perhaps part of the New York City metro area may be at risk for dangerous and damaging storms," said AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.
