A man was injured on Monday after he jumped in front of a Metro train, officials said, tying up lunchtime riders on the Yellow and Green Line trains while emergency crews worked to free him.

A spokesman for the D.C. transit system said it appeared the man intentionally jumped in front of a train at Fort Totten station. While the extent of his injuries was unclear Monday afternoon, officials said the man was conscious while being transported to a hospital.

The incident happened at about noon Monday and involved a Yellow Line train. The victim was described as a white adult male.

The Yellow Line was traveling to and from the Mt. Vernon Square stop because of the incident, and Green Line trains were single tracking between Georgia Avenue and West Hyattsville. Fort Totten customers were asked to use the station’s Red Line trains.
