Amtrak has resumed service between Providence, R.I., and the Route 128 station in Massachusetts after an Amtrak train fatally struck a trespasser on the track.

MBTA commuter rail service on the line also was delayed late Monday afternoon.

Amtrak said there were no injuries to its train's 192 passengers or crew after the 4:45 p.m. accident, which was about 10 miles west of the Route 128 station. Service was restored about two hours later.

The MBTA used shuttle buses for some of its passengers.

Amtrak police and local police are investigating.
