A man was injured Wednesday when he was possibly struck by a train at the Metro B Line Hollywood/Western Station in the East Hollywood area.

Paramedics were sent to the 5400 block of West Hollywood Boulevard about 9:25 a.m., the Los Angeles Fire Department reported.

The man was found “wedged” beneath the station platform, the LAFD reported.

“The man was not physically trapped by the train,” the LAFD said. “He has been safely extricated and is being medically evaluated by LAFD responders. His site affiliation and the circumstances of his being at track level have yet to be determined.”

Some rail delays were reported in the area, but service was back to normal within about a half-hour, Metro reported.
