THE BRONX - A man was pushed onto subway tracks in the Bronx and had his leg run over by a train, according to police. 

The incident happened at the Grand Concourse and East 170th Street station in Mount Eden around 6:45 a.m. 

Police say the 21-year-old man was pushed off of the platform and onto the tracks after an argument with another man.

The man's leg was run over by an approaching train, but he only suffered an ankle injury, police say.

He was transported to Lincoln Hospital in serious condition.

The incident briefly shut down the D line between 145th Street in Manhattan and Norwood and 205th street in the Bronx.  Service on the B line was also briefly suspended between Bedford Park Boulevard in the Bronx and Brighton Beach in Brooklyn, but has since been restored. 

Police are looking for a suspect in his 20s who pushed the man onto the tracks.
