A man was hit by a train at the Chamblee MARTA station Tuesday morning. 

MARTA said the crash happened just before 6 a.m. The man was in an unauthorized area that leads to track level and is secured by a marked gate when he was struck by a train. 

Service is back up and running after southbound service was suspended for a time. 

The man was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries to the hip and leg.

"All customers should adhere to posted signs and stay out of unauthorized areas. Trespassing on or near the trackway is illegal and can result in serious injury or death. It also disrupts rail service for thousands of people," a MARTA spokesperson said in a statement.

MARTA police have charged the man with criminal trespass and have suspended him from the MARTA system for 60 days.
