An 11:35 p.m. train heading from Penn Station to Babylon struck the man, identified as Pawel Nierodzinski, 32, while the train was pulling into the LIRR Woodside stop, the MTA said.
The train’s engineer said that as the train entered the station, he saw a man crouch down and leap in front of the train before it hit him, according to the spokesperson.
Several eastbound and westbound LIRR trains experienced up to 10 to 30 minute delays due to the incident, the MTA said.
About 2:50 a.m. regular eastbound service in Queens was restored, and by 3 a.m. all trains were on or close to schedule.
