Posted: Updated:

FITCHBURG, Mass. (AP) - Emergency officials say a 10-year-old boy has suffered a leg injury after being hit by a train in Fitchburg.

Police say the boy was struck about 6 p.m. Friday near the end of First Street.

Deputy Fire Chief Kenneth Desjean tells the Telegram & Gazette of Worcester that the boy had a traumatic injury to his lower leg but was conscious, alert and talking when ambulances arrived. He was taken to HealthAlliance Hospital in Leominster, then flown to UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester. His injuries do not appear to be life-threatening.

The accident delayed the MBTA's Fitchburg/South Acton line. MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo said the train that struck the boy was operated by Pan Am Railways.

The accident remained under investigation.
