Train service on the Long Island Railroad's Montauk branch was temporarily suspended after a vehicle was struck by a westbound train.

The crash took place around 10:25 a.m., Tuesday, Oct. 26, when a westbound Montauk Branch train from Patchogue headed for Babylon hit a car on the tracks east of Sayville, said the MTA.

One person in the vehicle was taken to the hospital, a railroad spokesman said. 

The number of people in the vehicle and what caused the collision are still under investigation.
