UPDATE: Authorities Identify Man Killed by Train in Ridgewood

By rlsmetro on

Authorities have identified the man who was found lying on the tracks fatally injured from an apparent train strike Thursday night near the Ridgewood and Ho-Ho-Kus train stations.

Authorities said it has not been determined when 60-year-old Paul Schneider was killed or if he had been dead before a NJ Transit Train struck him.

His body was discovered at 10:30 p.m. when an eastbound Main Line train reported an “adult male lying across an adjacent track,” authorities said.

Schneider’s last known address was in Ridgewood but authorities are not sure where he was living at the time of his death.
