Posted by Gold_12TH on Sat Mar 24 00:02:03 2012, in response to [Daily News] Another problem on (L) train @ Bedford Av, posted by Gold_12TH on Fri Mar 23 23:36:19 2012.A man was critically injured after he was struck by a subway train in Brooklyn Friday night.
The unidentified 28-year-old man was struck by a Manhattan bound L-train at the Bedford Avenue station at N. Seventh St. in Williamsburg shortly after 10 p.m., FDNY officials said.
The injured man was taken to Bellevue Hospital where he was listed in critical condition.
A witness said the victim had been fighting with another man on the tracks just seconds before he was struck.
"Two guys were fighting on the tracks. One of them got trapped between the platform and the train,” said Woody Brown, a window washer who saw the incident.
“I had a sickening feeling. He was still breathing heavy and trapped from the waist down. He seemed like he was in shock,” Brown said.
Police could not immediately confirm the eyewitness account and said they were investigating to determine how the incident occurred.
