ORIGINAL STORY

Long Island Rail Road trains were suspended between East Hampton and Montauk after a truck hit the railroad trestle over North Main Street in East Hampton Village early Monday morning.

According to East Hampton Village Police, at approximately 3:12 a.m. the vehicle hit the small trestle near the intersection of North Main Street and Hook Mill Road, which has relatively low clearance and has historically posed problems for tall trucks. According to Aaron Donovan, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, LIRR inspectors and MTA police were on the scene to repair the damage, with buses replacing train service in the meantime.
