New York subway train derailment in Queens came unexpectedly today, May 2. According to USA Today, the New York subway train derailment in Queens has reportedly only injured 18 people and killed none.

The New York subway train derailment in Queens transpired Friday morning. According to reports, it has sent four passengers already to local hospitals who claimed potentially serious injuries. The New York subway train derailment in Queens reportedly also caused long service disruptions on several other transit lines.

Along with the injured, the New York subway train derailment in Queens caused minor injuries for 15 passengers, who were immediately treated. The New York subway train derailment in Queens involved an express F train bound for Manhattan and Brooklyn. It derailed shortly before 10:30 in the morning, says the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and the New York City Fire Department.

Officials said firefighters and emergency medical service immediately responded to the New York subway train derailment in Queens. They reportedly raced to the scene and were able to guide and help an estimated 1,000 passengers up emergency ladders. The passengers in the New York subway train derailment in Queens were led by rescue team upwards through grates to the street as they evacuated the site of derailment.

Reports say EMS crews evaluated and treated riders of the New York subway train derailment in Queens while they rested on stretchers and wheelchairs after being rescued out of the subway tunnel. The MTA said that all passengers of the New York subway train derailment in Queens were safely evacuated as of 12:15 in the afternoon.

The MTA said added that six of the train's eight cars were derailed near 65th Street and Broadway in the Woodside section of Queens. The site of the New York subway train derailment in Queens is an estimated 1,200 feet south of the 65th Street station. It is located some miles east of New York across the East River.

According to the MTA, the New York subway train derailment in Queens halted F train service in both directions between Jamaica-179th Street and 21st Street Queensbridge. Subway service was also disrupted on some sections of the E, M and R lines.

Because emergency crews shut down electrical power after the New York subway train derailment in Queens, three nearby F and E line subway trains were halted. Accordingly, the trains were later returned to stations where passengers get down.

MTA Commissioner Thomas Prendergast said that New York City subway derailments, such as the New York subway train derailment in Queens today are relatively rare. The system meanwhile is safe. The most recent minor derailment happened in May 2013, says the MTA.
