L.A. Metro train hits, seriously injures pedestrian in Hollywood

A pedestrian suffered serious lower body injuries after being struck by a train at a Hollywood Metro station Friday afternoon, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The collision occurred shortly after 5 p.m. at the Hollywood/Highland station. Rescue workers removed the pedestrian from under the train and paramedics then took the person to a hospital, a fire department spokesperson said.

The incident caused delays on the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s B Line as a track between the Universal City/Studio City and Hollywood/Vine stations was shut down.

Metro could not be immediately reached for comment Friday evening.
