QUEENS — A man is in critical condition after falling on subway tracks and being struck by the 7 train Thursday morning, according to police.

A 38-year-old man was struck by a Manhattan-bound train at 103 St-Corona Plaza, police said.

He was hospitalized in critical condition.

The incident prompted a temporary suspension of the 7 train in both directions during the morning rush-hour commute, the MTA first announced shortly after 7 a.m.

Although service resumed within the hour, trains continued bypassing 103 St-Corona Plaza more than two hours later.

LIRR is accommodating NYCT customers at no additional charge at Flushing-Main St, Mets-Willets Point, 61 St-Woodside and 34 St-Penn Station, according to the MTA.

During the suspension, other alternatives included Q23, Q29, Q32, Q33, Q48, Q60, Q66 or Q72 bus service to nearby E, F, M and R trains.
