LIRR Train Derails In Brooklyn at Atlantic Terminal.
A Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) commuter train crashed at Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn, New York, about 8:20 a.m. Wednesday, injuring 103 passengers, officials said. About 600 people were on the train at the time of the derailment. Atlantic Terminal is located near the Barclays Center. FDNY initially reported 76 non-life-threatening injuries at the scene of the LIRR train derailment.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said at a news conference that the worst injury is believed to be a broken leg. Cuomo said the train did not stop before the track’s bumping block but it was traveling at a “fairly low rate of speed.” However, at least one witness reported the train appeared to be going faster than normal.
According to a spokesperson for the New York Fire Department, “one of the rails actually pierced the bottom of the train … we are fortunate we didn’t have more serious injuries.”
Ann investigation is underway to determine the cause of the crash, and why the operator didn’t stop the train.
