Dennis Truberg, 45, of Selden, leaned into the side of an eastbound train to Huntington that was leaving the station after making a stop when Truberg fell to the platform and fatally struck his head on the moving train at 2:15 p.m., according to an LIRR spokesman. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
MTA police are investigating but so far it appears accidental. Service was suspended on the LIRR’s main line between Hicksville and Jamaica until shortly before 4 p.m. The Port Jefferson, Oyster Bay and Ronkonkoma lines were all affected as a result.
