MILFORD, Conn. — A man was struck and killed by a westbound Metro-North train as it pulled into the station in Milford late Tuesday night.

A Metro-North spokeswoman said the incident occurred at 11:54 p.m. Tuesday. The man's identity has not been released, she said.

The incident caused minor delays late Tuesday, but trains were running on schedule Wednesday morning.

The MTA police are investigating.

This was the first death since the summer on Metro-North tracks in Connecticut. On Aug. 17, a 33-year-old Shelton man was hit by a Metro-North train after he finished his shift at a Fairfield bar.

He was struck a few hundred feet down the tracks from his workplace, and his death was ruled an accident by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
