Three bystanders were injured by the flying body parts of a man who was killed after he leaned into an oncoming New Jersey Transit train approaching the New Brunswick station on Tuesday. A fourth splattered person refused medical treatment.

It's not clear whether the man intended to be hit, but witnesses told NJ.com that he was leaning off the platform as the New York-bound train was pulling into the station around 5 p.m. Tuesday.

The force of the accident sent body parts flying and four bystanders were injured, according to CBS New York.

"When I got to the platform and looked down, I could see the trail marks; blood, as if somebody was dragged," Jill Tice, who arrived on the platform moments after the accident, told CBS New York. "And then I saw the cell phone, his hat, his gloves."

Three people were transported to the nearby Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital and treated for minor injuries. The fourth injured person reportedly refused treatment.

NJ.com reported that there were about 300 passengers aboard the train, but none of them were injured.

"They didn’t tell us what happened," passenger Lola Leo told CBS. "They just said an Amtrak train got delayed and stopped, and we would have to wait and we would have to wait a few more minutes. But it was pretty slow."

Train service on NJ Transit's Northeast Corridor line was temporarily suspended and resumed around 6:15 p.m. with residual delays.
