Two trains collided near the 96th Street subway station in Manhattan on Thursday afternoon, causing one of them to derail, the authorities said.
A northbound 1 train was carrying passengers when it collided with another train around 3 p.m., officials said.
It was not immediately clear whether anyone was injured. Nor was it clear which train derailed and what caused the crash.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority confirmed in a social media post that a train had derailed near 96th Street, and that service would be suspended “while emergency teams assist passengers.”
This is a developing story and will be updated.
