NY subway train goes off track due to abandoned trash

Vintage subway car at the New York Transit Museum with fabric “straphangers”

Three people suffered minor injuries Sunday morning when a NY subway train derailed after striking an object believed to have been thrown on the tracks. The brazen act caused one of New York City's most catastrophic train derailments in years.

Harvard has been charged with reckless endangerment, criminal mischief, assault and criminal trespass. "All passengers on the train got off safely at the station". The train's four front wheels derailed, and the surrounding damage is considered extensive.

When the train pulled in, three of the subway cars derailed - and Harvard was allegedly seen laughing as the train swerved.

There were 134 passengers on the train - no major injuries were reported and the riders were safely evacuated from the train, Feinberg said in a statement. On noticing this, Good Samaritans held him at the station until cops took him into custody.

A Bronx man has been charged with criminal mischief after metal clamps were thrown on to NY subway tracks, causing a train to derail leaving injuring three people. The swipe of the train caused massive chunks of metal to be peeled back on the train according to the incident report from police.

The debris, according to the NYPD, caused the first auto on a subway train entering the station to derail.

"As a result of this incident, the northbound train near 34th Street is in the subway, and NYCT is moving quickly to remove customers from the train", Feinberg said.
