NEW JERSEY (MYFOXNY.COM) -

At least four people were hit by flying body parts after an NJ Transit train hit and killed a man who was apparently leaning over the platform at the New Brunswick station.

The accident took place at about 5 p.m. on Tuesday.

The victim was identified as 50-year-old Frank Farriella of Middlesex, N.J.

NJ Transit spokesman John Durso, Jr. says one person on the platform sustained fractured ribs. Another complained of back, head and neck injuries and a third complained of head pain. A fourth person declined medical treatment.

Video from SkyFoxHD showed a white sheet covering a body on the platform.

About 300 people were on the New York-bound train at the time of the incident. None of the passengers was hurt.

Service on the Northeast Corridor line was significantly affected, with delays and a temporary suspension. Amtrak, which uses the same tracks, also had service impacts.
