A stopped train blocked intersections near the N.C. State Fairgrounds in West Raleigh on Thursday after it struck a pedestrian, according to police.

The train closed Hillsborough Road at Blue Ridge and Beryl roads at about 5 a.m., the Raleigh Police Department said on Twitter. The intersections reopened more than three hours later.

A male pedestrian was taken to WakeMed with serious injuries that “appear to be non-life-threatening,” police spokeswoman Laura Hourigan said in an email.

This is a developing story.
