A 21-year-old man was struck by a train 100 yards into the Alewife station tunnel today, said MBTA spokesperson Joseph D. Pesaturo.
The accident forced the MBTA to shut down train service in Davis Square from 10:40 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. Commuters took shuttle buses to Harvard Square to continue their train rides, he said.
The man, whose identity was not released by MBTA officials, survived and was taken to Beth Israel hospital and is in stable condition.
"He is alert and aware of his situation," said Pesaturo.
