A man was recovering Saturday morning after a CTA Red Line train struck him on the city's South Side.

A northbound train hit the man near the 47th street station near the Dan Ryan expressway Friday night. He suffered a broken arm and leg and was taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County.

It was not clear Saturday how the accident happened, but police said they were checking to see if the man was standing too close to the platform edge.
