NEW YORK - A New York commuter train derailed outside the city late Saturday, authorities said, without immediately confirming reports that dozens have minor injuries.
"The 9:22PM train from Penn due Huntington at 10:28PM has been canceled due to a train derailment near New Hyde Park," the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) said on Twitter.
Earlier service had been suspended on the same line due to the train's collision with a smaller service vehicle.
Passengers were evacuated, the LIRR showed on its feed.
The local ABC television affiliate reported there were four injuries; other sources said there were dozens, none of them serious.
Just last week, a commuter train slammed into a New Jersey train station.
The morning rush-hour collision at the Hoboken terminal killed one person and injured 114, causing major destruction at the transit choke point and gateway to Manhattan.
