A man is critically injured after falling onto a track at the Farragut West Metro station Sunday afternoon, D.C. Fire & EMS officials said.

D.C. Fire & EMS said on Twitter that the man was not struck by a train. He has been taken to a hospital.

Blue, Orange and Silver line trains were briefly suspended and then single-tracked between Foggy Bottom and McPherson Square.

Normal service resumed shortly before 2:45 p.m., but the transit agency told riders to expect residual delays.

Metro requested shuttle buses to transport passengers.
