NJ Transit Train Derails At New York's Penn Station

Author

05 April, 2017

Monday's derailment came on the heels of a similar one in which an Amtrak train lurched off the track as it pulled out of Penn Station and scraped a passing NJ Transit train, injuring two people, officials said. She described chaotic scenes as railway employees sought to shepherd passengers to safety."They kept sending us up to the back of the vehicle, then the front", said Jakwonk Dean, 20, from Newark. Four people suffered minor injuries. There were only a few minor injuries, but damage was found to track switches.

Twitter user Jordan Geary said he was on a Montclair/Boontoon line train that collided with another train.

"We heard a loud bang and the train vehicle we were in jerked", he said in an emailed statement. I don't even know who threw out the first pitch. "I'm not going to get to my game now because they are incompetent!" he said. Westbound service will be suspended from Jamaica to Penn as of 4PM and from Woodside to Penn between 6PM and 8PM.

Northeast Corridor (NEC) and North Jersey Coast Line (NJCL) trains will operate on a HOLIDAY schedule with some additional service.

Naparstek affected cars on the 10-car train were brought back onto the rail Tuesday morning after a slow, careful process. But he was late, missing much of the pageantry that normally comes with Opening Day.

Kim Waymer, 56, of Baldwin, also left work early after she got an alert on her phone about possible delays.

Grenis said she grabbed her friend Carly Susman and the two clutched each other.

"The condition at Penn affects everybody", said acting MTA Chairman Fernando Ferrer. "The derailment yesterday may or may not have been a problem because of the age of the infrastructure at Penn Station, but it certainly needs improvement", he said.

The accident is under investigation; Amtrak, which owns the tracks, is also assessing the situation.
