WASHINGTON HEIGHTS — A man was killed after jumping in front of an A train at the 168th Street subway station Tuesday afternoon, delaying service on the line uptown, authorities said.

The man jumped onto the southbound track at the 168th Street station about 1:12 p.m., fire officials said. 

The A train was initially suspended between 168th and 207th streets, but then started to run limited shuttle service by 2:30 p.m.

Riders were advised by the MTA to take the M100 and BX7 for additional service.

The A was running normally below 168th, the MTA said.

There was no immediate information on when normal service would resume.
