A man died after being struck by an L train as it barreled into First Avenue on Tuesday afternoon.

The victim, whose name wasn’t released, had been leaning over the tracks just after noon, police said, before the Eighth Avenue-bound train struck him. According to one source, the man jumped, but police said the investigation is ongoing. The Daily News said the victim was a New York University student.

L train service was canceled in both directions after the incident, resuming a couple of hours later with delays.
