New Jersey Transit and Amtrak have resumed rail service between Trenton and New York's Penn Station following an accident that killed a person along the tracks.

But officials say commuters should expect delays of up to 60 minutes in both directions and some cancellations throughout Thursday's morning rush.

The service had been suspended in both directions early Thursday between Metropark in Woodbridge Township and Trenton after a person was struck and killed around 6:30 a.m. near the train station in Metuchen. Further details about that accident have not been disclosed.

"PATH is cross honoring NJ Transit Rail Tickets and Passes at Newark, Hoboken and 33rd Street New York," NJ Transit tweeted.

Rails service was resumed around 8 a.m.
