Human Body Parts Found on Light Rail Tracks in Jersey City

Jersey City

Authorities in Hudson County are investigating an incident where police located body parts on NJ Transit Light Rail tracks early Thursday morning. 

According to a preliminary statement released from NJ Transit officials, at approximately 2 a.m, all service was halted on the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail line after a train came in contact with the body of a male near Washington and First Street. 

Sources close to the investigation told RLS Media police found the man's head and foot in one section of the tracks and his torso further along the rail line. 

NJ Transit Police is now leading the investigation, but there is no confirmation if the man's injuries were caused by the light-rail train at this time. 

The Hudson County Prosecutor's Office and Jersey City Police have been notified of the incident. 

NJ Transit officials said service remains temporarily suspended from Harborside to Newport for the active and ongoing investigation.
