NEW YORK (WABC) -- Rail commuters faced service disruptions Wednesday morning due to separate issues in New Jersey and on Long Island.

NJ Transit's Pascack Valley Line service was suspended in both directions between River Edge and Secaucus after a trespasser was struck at New Bridge Landing.

On Long Island, LIRR train service was temporarily suspended in both directions between Huntington and Port Jefferson due to broken rails east of Huntington and near St. James.

Customers were advised to use alternate branches including the Ronkonkoma and Babylon branches.

All service was later restored with residual delays.
