MANHATTAN — A woman was fatally struck by an L train at the 14th Street-Union Square subway station Wednesday afternoon, causing service to be suspended between Manhattan and Brooklyn, officials said. 

A woman in her 20s jumped against the side of a Brooklyn-bound train as it was entering 14th Street, an MTA spokeswoman said.

The woman was struck by the train around 4 p.m., the FDNY said, suspending service between the Eighth Avenue and Bedford Avenue stations for about an hour.

L train service resumed with delays by about 5:18 p.m., according to the MTA website. Service had been suspended for at least an hour prior to that.
