Service on the Franklin commuter rail line has been disrupted due to a person being struck by a train, MBTA officials said this morning.

A trespasser on the railroad was hit and killed by an outbound train between the Islington and Norwood Depot Stations at about 9:50 a.m., said MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo.

Outbound commuters will be bused from Readville station to Forge Park station. All local stops will be made.

Rail passengers should expect over 60-minute delays in their commute. Travelers should seek alternate transportation, officials said.
