Train derails at NYC's Penn Station; no injuries reported

Investigators are still looking into why the NJ Transit train derailed just outside the station Monday morning. There were about 1,200 passengers on the slow-moving train at the time of the derailment and five people were treated for minor injuries.

Midtown direct trains are running in and out of Hoboken Terminal where customers can access PATH and NJ Transit bus service.

As commuters began to flood Penn Station late Monday afternoon, some admitted they left work early in order to get ahead of the delays and possible cancellations.

It's the second derailment at Penn Station in two weeks.

There will be no trains to or from the Jersey Avenue or Avenel stations Tuesday, NJ Transit announced. Both derailments occurred during rush hour, impacting the morning commute for a busy route between NY and New Jersey. On the morning of March 24, an Amtrak train derailed in the same area near the tunnel that leads under the Hudson River to New Jersey. There was no word on what caused either one of the recent derailments.

New York Fire Department officials reported four people were injured, though the severity of the injuries was unknown. It's the second train derailment in as many weeks and today, the state agency was unable to commit to a timeline for fix.
