Rail service on two NJ Transit lines has been restored in both directions Wednesday afternoon after a truck hit a power transformer, officials said.

Service on the Northeast Corridor and the North Jersey Coast lines was suspended for about two hours Wednesday afternoon after a flatbed truck flipped over on the tracks and hit the transformer at a crossing on Route 27 in Iselin, officials say.

No injuries were been reported.

Residual delays should be expected on both lines, officials say. 

The suspensions followed a pair of earlier suspensions on the Morris and Essex and Pascack lines earlier in the day for unrelated incidents.
