NEW YORK — A Long Island Rail Road train derailed on Saturday near the community of New Hyde Park, injuring as many as 29 people and halting service on the key transit line in both directions, CNBC reported.

Official details were not available on the precise circumstances of the incident, which occurred when a passenger train struck a work train about 20 miles east of Manhattan. It was not immediately clear if the work train was stationary at the time.

Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano told a news conference 29 people were treated in hospitals for non-life threatening injuries such as broken bones and concussions. Scores more were evaluated or treated at the scene for scrapes or bruises. For the full story, click here.
