NJ Transit derailment injures 5

Posted on April 4, 2017

NEW YORK — Three cars on a NJ Transit train derailed early Monday as it pulled into Penn Station, injuring five of the 1,200 people on board, the New York Daily News reports.

The slow-speed derailment of the three middle cars happened as train 3926 from Trenton rolled onto Track Nine in the station at about 9 a.m. The impact was hard enough to break a wheel off of one of the cars.

Five people suffered minor injuries, the FDNY said. The passengers in the last four cars had to walk the tracks to reach the platform. All NJ Transit service into Penn Station was suspended for most of the morning. For the full story, click here.
