    Queens Train Derails, Disrupts F Train Service

    September 30, 2019


    A SUBWAY CAR WITH NEARLY 200 RIDERS ON BOARD THE RAILS IN QUEENS. GOOD EVENING, THANKS FOR JOINING US. I AM JESSICA MOORE. CHRIS MACK STILL ON SCENE INVESTIGATING WHAT CAUSED THE SUBWAY TRAIN TO DERAIL TONIGHT AND THAT LED TO A DISRUPTION IN SERVICE. REENA ROY LIVE IN BRIARWOOD WITH MORE ON THE BREAKING NEWS. Reporter: AS YOU CAN IMAGINE, THIS LED TO A LOT OF FRUSTRATION AND CONFUSION FOR COMMUTERS, WONDERING WHAT IS GOING ON. THE F TRAIN SUSPENDED IN BOTH DIRECTIONS BETWEEN BRIARWOOD AND JAMAICA 179 STREET. YOU CAN SEE THIS STREET AT PARSONS BOULEVARD AND HILLSIDE AVENUE CURRENTLY CLOSED OFF. WE JUST GOT INFORMATION FROM THE MTA IN A PRESS CONFERENCE EXPLAINING WHAT CAUSED ALL OF THIS. A SPOKESPERSON SAID AN F TRAIN DERAILED JUST BEFORE 8:00 TONIGHT AS IT WAS GOING SOUTHBOUND BETWEEN PARSONS AND SUTPHIN BOULEVARD. 2 WHEELS OF THE FIRST PART WENT OFF THE TRACKS AND FOR SOME REASON, RIGHT BEFORE THAT, THE EMERGENCY BRAKES WENT OFF, ALMOST 200 PASSENGERS HAD TO BE EVACUATED, THANKFULLY NOBODY WAS HURT. THE MTA SAID A THIRD RAIL PROTECTION THAT USUALLY USED BY WORKERS DOING MAINTENANCE, THAT WAS ALSO FOUND UNDERNEATH THE TRAIN WHICH WAS PARTICULAR BECAUSE NO WORK WAS BEING DONE AND NO WORK SCHEDULE. INVESTIGATORS ARE WORKING TO FIGURE OUT IF THAT HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE DERAILMENT. WE DON’T KNOW FOR CERTAIN WHAT THE CONNECTION IS BETWEEN THE THIRD RAIL MAT IN THE DERAILMENT, NORMALLY THE THIRD ROW MAT PROTECTING WORKERS SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN UNDER THE SECOND CAR OF THE TRAIN. Reporter: THE MTA WILL BE INVESTIGATING THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT. OF COURSE, STILL A LOT OF QUESTIONS AS TO WHAT EXACTLY HAPPENED. WE ARE TOLD THINGS WILL BE BACK
