LOWER EAST SIDE — A woman was injured at the Delancey Street station Thursday morning, disrupting service along the F and A train lines during morning rush hour, officials said.

It's unclear if the woman was struck by a train or fell into the tracks, but the incident occurred within the station about 7:15 a.m., according to the FDNY.

The woman, whose identity was not released, was rushed to New York Hospital, a fire spokesman said. Her condition was not immediately known.

All Brooklyn-bound F trains were temporarily rerouted along the A line between West 4th Street and Jay Street-MetroTech stations, causing delays on both lines, according to the MTA's website.
