BROOKLYN — A person was struck and injured by a train in Sunset Park Thursday, officials said.

The victim, who was not identified, was hit in the leg by a northbound R train at the 53rd Street station about 10:45 a.m., an FDNY spokesman said.

The person, who suffered a "severe laceration to the leg," was taken to Lutheran Medical Center, the spokesman said. His condition was not immediately known, though a source added that the victim was alive when he was moved.

Kevin Ortiz, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, said R-train service was suspended in both directions between 95th and 36th streets for about an hour. Full service was restored about noon, he added.
