NJ Transit Police have identified the "trespasser" that was fatally struck by a train in Ridgewood Thursday night.
According to NJ Transit Spokesman John Durso Jr., the victim has been identified as Mark Moglia, of Waldwick, NJ.
It is not clear why Moglia was walking along the westbound track near the Ridgewood Train Station platform when he was struck at 8:25 p.m., by a commuter train carrying 130 passengers.
Durso said that a preliminary investigation has determined the victim was walking along the track – which eyewitnesses on scene confirmed to Patch – and quickly spotted by the train engineer.
Durso said the engineer blew his horn twice and Moglia "cleared" the train but was somehow still struck by one of the last cars.
The investigation remains ongoing, Durso said.
The Main/Bergen and Port Jervis lines were temporarily suspended but restored before 10 p.m. Trains continued running eastbound toward Hoboken and New York without abatement.
