A man died Wednesday night after he was struck by an LIRR train at the Flushing-Main Street stop.

A man was killed after he apparently jumped in front of an LIRR train Wednesday night as it was pulling into the Flushing-Main Street station.

A Port Washington branch train heading to Penn Station struck the victim, identified as only an adult man, about 8:40 p.m., according to an MTA spokeswoman.

As the train slowed down and approached the stop, crew members saw the man about to jump onto the tracks, and applied the emergency brakes and blew the horn, the spokeswoman said. The train then hit the man, who did not survive.

The incident suspended service on the Port Washington branch until about 9:45 p.m., according to the MTA.
