Long Island Railroad Strike Averted After Unions Make A Deal

A Long Island Rail Road train derailed at Brooklyn’s Atlantic Terminal Wednesday morning, injuring several people, according to sources.

The commuter train failed to come to complete stop on Track 6 as it pulled into the transit hub around 8:20 A.M. Emergency responders arrived immediately and were still evacuating passengers from the train 30 minutes after the crash.

The extent of the damage is not yet known, however, current reports indicate that there are at least 37 people injured. Luckily, according to the New York Fire Department, none of the injuries are life-threatening.

The official LIRR Twitter account tweeted that commuters should “anticipate possible delays into and out of Atlantic Terminal this morning due to an incident at the terminal.”

Several roads near Atlantic Terminal were closed due to fire trucks and ambulances.
