UPDATE: Train crossings are set to be reopened shortly, Bergenfield Police tweeted around 11:20 a.m.
A person was struck and killed by a CSX freight train in Dumont Monday morning, prompting railroad crossing closures and traffic delays through Teaneck, officials said.
Bergenfield Police said all crossings in the borough were closed and asked motorists to use the State Street bridge in Teaneck as a detour. There were reports of heavy delays on Windsor Road, from New Bridge Road to State Street.
Bob Sullivan, a CSX spokesman, said the train was bound for Newark from Louisville, Ky. It was carrying 89 freight cars and has two locomotives. Two CSX crew members on board were not injured, he added.
The railroad company was cooperating with police, Sullivan said. He referred questions about the investigation to local authorities.
Police did not immediately release additional information.
