MTA: L train service suspended between Manhattan-Brooklyn

A person was struck by an L train at the 14th Street-Union Square station on Wednesday, authorities said, halting the line between Manhattan and Brooklyn just as the rush hour commute was getting underway.

The person, who was not immediately identified, was struck just after 4 p.m., an FDNY spokesman said.

The circumstances surrounding the incident were not immediately clear, but an MTA spokesman said the victim jumped onto the tracks.

The L train is currently suspended between Eighth Avenue in Manhattan and Bedford Avenue in Brooklyn, the MTA said.  

Customers are being urged to use the M14A and M14D local bus service instead. For train service to Brooklyn, straphangers can take the A, C, J and M lines, the MTA said.
