A man was killed by a Metro Rail Blue Line train at the Artesia station Tuesday, officials said.

The man, whose name was not released, was walking on or near the tracks about 1 p.m. when he was struck by a southbound train pulling into the station, Metropolitan Transportation Authority officials said.

The station was closed for more than three hours, delaying commutes by at least 30 minutes.
