Three dead after two trains strike vehicle on tracks

A Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) eastbound train first struck the vehicle, which had bypassed the warning gates, according to the President of the MTA Long Island Railroad, Phillip Eng. Then a second, westbound train heading into New York City struck the vehicle, derailing two of its cars.

“There were three fatalities, all from the vehicle. We had seven passengers that were taken to hospitals, area hospitals, just for precautionary measures. Engineer and conductor were also taken to a hospital for injuries,” said Eng.

Eng told media that the eastbound train was carrying roughly 100 people, while the westbound held approximately 800.

Rail service was suspended and delayed in both directions following an incident.
