A man was fatally struck by an Amtrak train in Upper Manhattan this afternoon, according to reports.

The FDNY tells us they responded to a report of a person hit by a train at around 2:45 p.m., in the vicinity of the Henry Hudson Parkway and 159th Street. According to officials, he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Witness Chester Anand is onboard the Amtrak train, which has been halted by the George Washington Bridge since the incident occurred this afternoon. He tells us: "Apparently there was a loud thud and then the train slowed down until an eventual full halt. Upon a curve there was a man with his bike on the tracks, although the whistle was blown he did not move." Anand adds that the conductor told him, "He didn't make it."
