A man was hospitalized Sunday after he fell on "el" tracks and was struck by a CTA train.

Authorities said they did not know why the man fell at the Logan Square Blue Line stop at approximately 1 a.m.

The man's name and age were not released.

Immediately after the accident, CTA workers cut power to the tracks and used a bus to take riders through areas affected by the shutdown.
