NYC Subway train hits man in face at Upper West Side station

I don't understand how this could happen the way this report describes it. 
The only way I could see it happening is if the man was leaning over into the track, or the train jumped the track.   This is another example of lazy journalism of a simple story.     

NY Daily News reports 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.
