Person Hit by No. 4 Train

Oh, this is not good. You know how every time the subway announcer issues one of those “after an earlier incident” speeches, you immediately wonder if some loon phoned in a fake bomb threat or if someone was hit? Well, unfortunately this time it was the latter. Gothamist reports that a person was struck by a No. 4 train at Union Square subway station at 8:30 this morning. The police investigation is ongoing. There are delays on the 4, 5, and 6 lines as NYC Transit is running Brooklyn-bound 4 and 5 trains on the local tracks between Grand Central and Brooklyn Bridge–City Hall.
