ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) Metro says one of its employees who was apparently struck by a train has been hospitalized.

A preliminary report says the man was hit early Thursday between the Braddock Road and Reagan National Airport stations.

Officials say riders can expect major delays into the afternoon in both directions of the blue and yellow lines.

The two lines are divided into segments, with blue line trains moving between Franconia-Springfield and King Street and then between Largo and the airport. Yellow line trains are going between the Huntington and King Street stations, and between the Fort Totten and airport stops.

There are shuttle buses between King Street, Braddock Road and the airport.
