SOMERSET COUNTY — A man hit and killed this morning by a passing NJ Transit train in Somerville has been identified as Aly Abbas, a 35-year-old Somerville resident, an agency spokesman said this afternoon.
Abbas was on the railroad’s right of way about 6:30 a.m. and was struck by a Newark-bound train near the Somerset Street crossing, about a half-mile west of the Somerville train station, the spokesman, John Durso Jr., said.
Agency investigators, along with the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office and medical examiner, are still investigating the circumstances around the incident, he said.
The train was traveling about 40 mph, Durso said.
There were no injuries to the crew or roughly 150 passengers, who were transferred to another train. The accident cancelled two other trains and delayed service in both directions. Trains are again running on time, Durso said.
According to public records, Abbas, of Main Street, owned a Bridgewater home-construction company.
