SEATTLE -- Light rail service has been temporarily halted after a pedestrian was struck by a train at S. Holgate Street.

A man was reportedly crossing a sidewalk when he was struck by a train, said a Sound Transit official. He was taken to Harborview Medical Center, where he is in critical condition.

Northbound light rail service is temporarily suspended between the SODO and Beacon Hills stations. Rail service was expected to be shut down for several hours during the investigation.
