Three Injured After G Train Derails In Brooklyn

Three people were hurt when a subway train derailed in Brooklyn on the G line, according to officials. The train’s two front wheels derailed 700 feet north of the Hoyt-Schermerhorn station, which prompted service changes and halted service between Church Avenue and Bedford-Nostrand Avenues in both directions.

 

The MTA was not able to give a cause for the derailment, but the authority said it was investigating the possibility that concrete that fell from a wall contributed to it.

 

About 80 passengers were led through the four-car train and the subway tunnel to the Hoyt-Schermerhorn platform, officials said.

 

The injured were taken to Brooklyn Hospital. One woman was treated for dizziness due to the heat, and two others were treated for minor injuries, police said.


The attorneys at Morgan Levine Dolan have recovered millions of dollars for victims of train accidents and other types of accidents involving trains and motor vehicles.
