The conductor said that he was unable to stop the train before fatally striking a 20-year-old.
Cans of spray paint were found near the body of a 20-year-old graffiti artist who was struck and killed by a subway in Brooklyn early Monday, police said.
The man, whose name wasn’t immediately released, was hit by a Manhattan-bound D train at the 59th St. station. Transit officials said the motorman tried to stop the train just after 5 a.m., but couldn’t bring it to a halt in time.
Police withheld the man’s name pending notification of his family. He was found in a tunnel. It wasn’t immediately clear if the man had already vandalized the interior of the tunnel or was about to tag it.
Service was stalled during the early part of the morning rush. Trains were diverted to the N line.
