    A man was killed at the New Jersey Transit station in New Brunswick when he leaned into the path of an oncoming train Tuesday evening, and four others were injured when they were hit by body parts, authorities say.

    Three of those passengers were taken to Robert Wood Johnson Medical Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries, while a fourth person refused medical attention. 

    About 300 people were aboard the New York-bound Northeast Corridor train, but no injuries were reported to passengers.

    "Everybody got up panicking to see what happened," said one rider. 

    Service on the Northeast Corridor was temporarily suspended as police responded, and was restored shortly afterward.
