NJ Transit officials have released the identity of a man struck and killed by a train in Glen Rock Friday night, NorthJersey.com reported.
According to the report, Edmund Schuck, 61, a borough resident, ducked under the crossing gate at Rock Road and waited for the train to approach him, the report said. He did not make an attempt to move from the train’s path, NJ Transit officials told NorthJersey.com.
However, authorities have not yet ruled the death a suicide, and say it is still under investigation, according to the report.
Schuck was killed Friday night in an incident that caused major train delays throughout the area when he was hit by a Port Jervis-bound train carrying about 450 passengers.
