An 87-year-old borough man was struck and killed by an NJ Transit passenger train in Westwood during Sunday's overnight thunderstorm.

The man was struck just by the Pascack Valley Line train carrying a dozen or so people at Broadway and Irvington Street just after 1:30 a.m., responders said.

The scene was cleared and service resumed Woodcliff Lake and Spring Valley at 5:45 a.m., they said.

Westwood, Emerson, Hillsdale and NJ Transit police responded, along with the Bergen County Sheriff's Bureau of Criminal Identification, which collected evidence.

NJT police were handling the investigation.
