DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - MARTA service is resuming at the Chamblee station after a train hit a man Tuesday morning.
Officials tell Channel 2 Action News and our partners at AJC.com the man went into an unauthorized area that leads to the track level. He suffered non-life threatening injuries to his leg and hip.
He was arrested by MARTA Police, charged with criminal trespass and suspended from the MARTA system for 60 days.
