The North Jersey Coastline train with two engines had no passenger cars when the boy was struck around 1:30 a.m. near West Bergen Place near Red Bank station, NJ Transit spokesperson Everett Merrill told Daily Voice.

The train was heading from the Meadows Maintenance Complex (MMC) in Kearny to Long Branch, he told the outlet. No passengers were on the train and no injuries were reported to the crew.
