Woman Hit By D Train, Critically Injured At Herald Square

MANHATTAN — An elderly woman was struck by a train and critically injured at the Herald Square subway station on Monday, MTA officials said.

The 75-year-old victim was hit by a Bronx-bound D train at the station, located at 34th Street and Sixth Avenue, about 10:15 a.m., MTA and FDNY officials said.

After she was pulled from the south end of the tracks, paramedics rushed her to Bellevue Hospital, where she was critical, an FDNY spokesman said.

After being temporarily rerouted, D train service was restored a short time later with a few residual delays, an MTA spokesman said.

Officials could not confirm how the woman ended up on the track or whether any criminality is suspected.
