An E train fatally struck an MTA signal maintainer at the 46th and Broadway subway station.

An MTA worker was killed on the job when a subway train struck him in Astoria early this morning, said the transit agency.

The signal maintainer, identified as 58-year-old Louis Moore of Hollis, was working on the system around 3:20 a.m. when a Parsons-Archer-bound E train entering the 46th Street and Broadway station fatally hit him.

“An intensive investigation into the circumstances of his death is underway, and this incident will be the subject of a formal board of inquiry by the New York City Transit Office of System Safety,” the MTA said in a statement.

This morning’s incident is the first death of a New York City Transit worker on the job since 2010, and the first time a worker was struck and killed by a train since April 2007.
