A 17-year-old male was struck by a train while walking along tracks in the Bronx, cops said. 

One of the teen’s legs was severed in the incident, which occurred shortly after 4 a.m. Saturday near Jerome Avenue and East Mount Eden Avenue, police said.

The train operator spotted the 17-year-old wandering on the tracks as the northbound subway pulled in, but could not stop in time, cops said.
