MOTT HAVEN, the Bronx — A person was struck by a subway train early Friday morning in the Bronx, causing temporary service disruptions and delays along the Nos. 4, 5 and 6 lines, the MTA said.

The FDNY said a call came in around 5:15 a.m. for a person struck by a train near the Third Avenue-East 138th Street subway station in the Mott Haven area.

The victim was rushed to an area hospital, authorities said. Their condition and the extent of their injuries was not immediately known.

Service along the No. 4, 5, 6 lines was temporarily suspended between the Bronx and East Harlem, as well as northbound between Downtown Manhattan and East Harlem, but later resumed.

The transit agency said riders should expect delays in both directions as service gets back on track ahead of the morning rush.

As an alternative, for service between the Bronx and Manhattan, customers were advised to take the Nos. 2 or 4 trains, or the BX15 or BX19 bus lines.

Submit tips to police by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), visiting, downloading the NYPD Crime Stoppers mobile app, or texting 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577. Spanish-speaking callers are asked to dial 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
