Amtrak says a woman was struck and killed on the tracks in New Haven, temporarily halting train service along the Connecticut shoreline. The woman's identity has not been released, but Amtrak spokesman Cliff Cole that she was not a rail worker or other person authorized to be on the tracks.

She died when she was hit by a Shore Line East commuter train carrying 12 to 15 passengers around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday. No other injuries were reported.

Trains were held at the New Haven station, but resumed service about 90 minutes after the incident, which remained under investigation Tuesday afternoon.
