A man was seriously injured on Tuesday (Nov. 9) after he was apparently struck by a southbound Metro-North at the Breakneck Ridge stop.

Metro-North said it is investigating the incident, which took place at about 11:20 p.m. at the stop, which is closed for construction. Hudson Line service was suspended for about 50 minutes while first responders located the man, who was airlifted from Dutchess Manor to Westchester Medical Center.
