A man was taken to the hospital after reportedly being injured while disembarking a commuter rail train in Hingham Thursday afternoon.

An MBTA spokesman said that at 1:15 p.m. outbound service on the Greenbush line was suspended between the West Hingham station and the Greenbush Station after an incident at the the Nantasket Junction stop.

The individual reported to police that he was trying to get off the train when he was injured. There were police scanner reports that the man was dragged by the commuter train approximately 50 yards, but the MBTA official could not confirm that and said the transit police are still investigating.

The man was taken to the hospital, and the extent of his injuries are unknown. Rail service was restored at around 2:45-3 p.m. Thursday.
