NORWALK, CT (WFSB) -

Norwalk and Metro North police are investigating an incident that occurred early Sunday morning along the tracks off of Washington Street.

Officials said they were called to the tracks just east of the South Norwalk station around 3:10 a.m. after it was initially reported that a person may have been struck by a passing train.

The victim, a man in his 20's, was along the tracks near one of the passenger cars of a northbound train.

The victim was taken to Norwalk Hospital with minor injuries.

Officials said they have not been able to determine if the victim was actually struck by the train or if he just fell down the 30 foot embankment causing his injuries.

Train service was delayed temporarily while crews investigated.
