GUILFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Train service has resumed in Guilford after a pedestrian was struck and killed by a train Friday morning.

News 8 spoke with Amtrak spokesman Craig Schultz, who confirmed that at 8:25 a.m., the Acela Express train traveling from New York to Boston struck a person in Guilford. The pedestrian succumbed to their injuries. The 119 passengers and crew on the train were not injured, Schultz said.

All train service was halted in Guilford for two and a half hours as police conducted their investigation. In addition to Amtrak trains, a number of Shoreline East trains were also stopped in the area while police were on the scene. Service resumed around 10:00 a.m.

Amtrak reports that the stopped trains are now back underway, and up to six additional trains will experience residual delays through the Guilford area.
