A subway train struck an unsuspecting straphanger in the face on the Upper West Side Sunday afternoon.

The man was walking down the platform of the 96th St. Station on Broadway at about 2 p.m. when he turned his head and was hit by an oncoming No. 1 train, witnesses said.

The train conductor, apparently unaware the man had been hit, kept heading downtown, witnesses said. The injured man was bleeding heavily but conscious as he received treatment from EMTs.
